Students Training Course Held in the Home of the Parent

The College Division

The College Division of the Students Training Course was held in Jiba from March 4 to 8. A total of 574 university, junior college, and technical school students connected to the path participated in the course. The participants were divided into groups that belonged to one of four houses, each of which had its own director, vice director, and counselors. The course was supported by a total of 237 staff members.

This year’s theme was “A thing lent, a thing borrowed—Let’s think about God’s blessings.” During the course, the students learned about the truth of “a thing lent, a thing borrowed” and the blessings of God the Parent through lectures and group times.

The High School Graduates Division

From March 10 to 12, the High School Graduates Division of the Students Training Course was held in Jiba. The course was attended by 267 high school age people, who had just graduated or were expecting to graduate this spring. During the course, the participants belonged to one of four houses, where smaller groups were also formed, and two counselors were assigned to each group. With a total of 185 staff members supporting the course, the participants took part in various activities such as group times, lectures, and group discussions.

This course started nine years ago and is intended to provide high school graduates—who are about to embark on a new stage of life including going on to higher education and starting to work—with an opportunity to learn about the teachings and Oyasama’s Divine Model and deepen ties with followers in the same generation in the hope that this experience may be useful for their future life of faith.
