Here in Germany at Goeppingen, the Unity Mission Church has the same type of services as other Peace Mission Churches. In the pictures above, members of the Posebud Choir in Germany participate in church services. Other pictures show Holy Communion in progress, which according to the example of FATHER DIVINE, is a material as well as a spiritual service.

 

FATHER DIVINE recently said of HIS church here, "By the Unity of Spirit, of Mind, of Aim and of Purpose, I have been able to bless all who enter the open door of MY Church in Germany . . . My true followers sought first to possess My Spirit and MY Mind and enter into the Kingdom of GOD. By so doing the blessings were obliged to overtake them, even though they sought to flee from them by giving and giving and giving, seeking nothing in return, even as I Personally, showed them the way."

 

 

 

Thank YOU, FATHER and MOTHER DIVNE!
