1) Introduction
*Show a picture of True Parents and ask questions about them. Who are they? What are their names? What do you know about them? How old are they? Where do they come from? Today we will learn what we mean by ‘True Parents.’

2) Explain the term ‘True Parents’ 
* True Parents means parents who love God first, are filled with God’s love and show that love not only to their own children, but to all people. They are always good and have nothing bad in them.

And they are True Parents for all people. 
* In the beginning God made Adam and Eve. He wanted them to grow in love, be blessed in marriage and have children filled with God’s love. They were to be the original True Parents. Their children were to be true children and their family a true family. They were to be True Parents of all people who came after them. Even when Adam and Eve went to spirit world they would still be True Parents.

* But Adam and Eve disobeyed God and instead of being filled with God’s love, their love became selfish. They became far from God. Even though Adam and Eve couldn’t become True Parents, God still needed a new Adam and Eve to become True Parents.
* After many years God found one man who could stand as the new Adam. A man who obeyed God, grew in God’s love and taught people how to live in God’s way. Jesus became the True Adam that God had waited for. He needed to find a True Eve and be blessed in marriage, but he died before he could do that.

* Many years passed and finally God found Sun Myung Moon as the third Adam. He then found Hak Ja Han to stand as a the true Eve. They obeyed GodTogether they received the Blessing had children and became a True Family. Finally the world has True Parents who are parents to all people and forever. God can now rule this world through True Parents and we can build one family under God for all people.
