A Destiny Together: Justice for Indigenous People

UNI005-ADT-DL-Facebook-CoverA Destiny Together is a call from the Assembly of the Uniting Church in Australia to all Church members to participate in a week of prayer and fasting for justice for First Peoples. It is a reflection of the Church’s commitment to work together for justice, recognition and reconciliation and to bear witness to the genuine transformation of relationship that is possible through God’s love in Jesus Christ.

A nationwide week of prayer, fasting and reflection

The heart of the week will be a nationwide movement of Uniting Church members, groups and congregations engaged in prayer, fasting and reflection.  Hobart North will join “A Destiny Together “ in worship over the next 2 weeks, together with morning (8.30-9.00am) and afternoon (5.30-6.00pm) prayer and reflection, each lasting 30 minutes.  The resource for this will be provided by the Assembly and UAICC.

A public prayer vigil in Canberra

A Destiny Together will feature a public prayer vigil on the lawns of Parliament House in Canberra, on Tuesday 18 March. All Uniting Church members are invited to come to Canberra to participate in this service—a public witness to both our grief at the continued injustice, racism and exclusion suffered by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and our belief that recognition, justice and reconciliation are possible when we work together. The vigil will be led by the Chair of the Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress (UAICC), Rev. Rronang Garrawurra, and UCA President, Rev. Prof. Andrew Dutney.
