7월 7일 스웨덴의 수도 스톡홀룸(Stockholm)에서 피스로드 행사가 개최되었다. 오후 4시경에 도심 근방에 위치한 스웨덴의 성지에 모인 20여명의 참가자들은 피스로드 깃발을 들고 행진을 시작했다. 출발지역은 1970년에 지어져 스웨덴에서의 평화통일운동을 시작했던 곳으로 많은 회원들의 추억이 어린 곳이다.

도심 북쪽에 위치한 큰 호수공원인 왕립공원으로 이동한 참석자들은 스웨덴의 유명한 건물들을 지나 한 시간40분간을 행진했다. 스웨덴의 평화센터에 도착해서 피스로드의 개최를 축하하는 바비큐 파티를 열었다.

아름다운 날씨로 피스로드 행진을 도와준 하늘부모님께 감사드리며 스웨덴 첫 피스로드 행진이 마무리 되었고 이후 8월 2일 남동부의 웁살라(Uppsala)시에서 다음 피스로드를 개최할 예정이다.


On July 7, 4:30 p.m. in Stockholm, Sweden, about 20 members gathered at the Holy Ground, located right close to the city center. Our walk took us past our church’s first public witnessing center, where many lectures and public activities were held in the 1970s. Several members had joined through this place, so it had special meaning to many older members even though 2nd-generation member didn’t know about it.

The walk with the Peace Road flag continued north into a large park area which is now named the Royal National City Park. Located right north of the city is this large lake and park area. We walked along the water and passed through several buildings that are significant to Sweden. First we passed the museum of one Sweden’s most famous sculptures, Carl Eldh, located on a beautiful hill overlooking the lake.

Further on, we passed the residence of the Swedish crown princess, Stockholm University and the Royal Swedish Academy, which appoints the Nobel Prize winners in Physics and Chemistry.

After an hour and 45 minutes, we arrived at the Swedish provisional Peace Embassy. There, we could rest our legs, enjoy fellowship with share and a nice barbecue. These days we have had poor weather, but we could feel Heavenly Parent’s grace when the sun lit up during our walk, with so we could enjoy the beautiful scenery.

Sweden is also planning a second Peace Road event in Uppsala, on August 2.
