Celebrating Peace amid Diversity this Interfaith September

Celebrating Peace amid Diversity this Interfaith September

Uniting Church congregations around the country will again celebrate the peace and diversity that is a part of God’s creation through interfaith events in September.

“We are called to live together in peace,” said Rev. Glenda Blakefield, the National Director for Relations with Other Faiths at the Uniting Church in Australia National Assembly.

“We are called to love our neighbour as God loves us and all people.”

“In Australia, where we are a wonderfully varied country, this includes celebrating the diversity of faith in all people.”

The month, beginning the first Sunday of September, will include worship, interfaith festivals, scripture studies and more.

Interfaith reflections suitable for the International Day of Peace, Social Justice Sunday and other resources for congregational activities will be available on the Assembly’s Relations with Other Faiths website in August. https://www.assembly.uca.org.au/rof/resources/int-sep

The Uniting Church in Australia National Working Group of Relations with Other Faiths was established to promote knowledge and understanding of other living world faiths and their communities, and seeks to develop a commitment to respect, tolerance, friendship and harmony with our neighbours.
