OUR TRADITION, REVEREND SUN MYUNG MOON The idea of tradition has various meanings for different people; for instance, the British are said to have honored a long tradition; an organization cherishes its tradition and a church honors its tradition. A family also thinks highly of its tradition. Tradition is important in religions; the Jews especially feel very deeply about their tradition. As Unification Church members, we need a tradition also.
All men need tradition, but what about God? He also needs a tradition. We know that traditions seem to change as history changes. Can tradition which changes with the course of history be different from the direction of heaven? Where does tradition begin, and where will it go?
