Our Churches - Uniting Church in Australia

UCAx150

A World free of nuclear weapons

Uniting Church Assembly President, Dr Deidre Palmer, reflects on bringing people of faith together to share a common commitment to peacemaking.

On Monday 24 February 2020 the Uniting Church hosted an interfaith roundtable on the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN).

President Deidre Palmer acknowledges that:

“As followers of Jesus, we are called to be bearers of God’s peace. We are called to be an alternative voice to narratives of violence, destruction and hatred.” 

Dr Palmer said that the meeting was an opportunity "to look at the ways people of faith can work in our own organisations and collaboratively toward a more peaceful world."
