The Uniting Church in Australia (UCA) National Assembly Working Group on Relations with Other Faiths would like to add its name to the many supporters of World Interfaith Harmony Week.
The UCA is the third largest Christian denomination in Australia; a country that is increasingly multicultural and multi-faith. We believe that this diversity is a part of God’s creation and that we are therefore called to live together in peace, loving our neighbour as God loves us and all people.
Responding to Christ’s call within Australia’s contemporary landscape, our Working Group was established to promote knowledge and understanding of other living world faiths and communities. We seek to promote respect for the integrity of the beliefs of other faiths, cultures and traditions. This desire not only arises from our common humanity but also because we seek to live in peace and goodwill as neighbours in our communities and the world.
Believing that World Interfaith Harmony Week promotes peace and goodwill within communities, we affirm the ideals and ambitions of the same.
Grace and peace,
Uniting Church in Australia
