Religious Youth Service

The motto of the Religious Youth Service (RYS) is "World Peace Through Interreligious Action." The RYS provides a forum for youth to put aside doctrinal differences and unite in activities of service. Its vision is embodied in its name: Religious: because the peaceful future of our world is dependent upon founding our societies on the enduring values that religions teach; Youth: because young people are the future of our societies, they will inherit the earth, and the responsibility of peace; Service: because to serve freely is to make the ideals of compassion and charity actual in our world. In the words of Reverend Moon, "God is calling for religious people with living spirituality to uphold the truth of religion and to relate it to the situations in their "societies."
