OUR WALK AS FIRST AND SECOND PEOPLES
At the heart of the Uniting Church is a commitment to a relationship with the Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress (UAICC) and with the First Peoples of this land.
We walk together as all First and Second Peoples, seeking to build a church and nation of justice and reconciliation.
The Uniting Church has affirmed that the First Peoples of Australia, the Aboriginal and Islander Peoples, are sovereign peoples in Australia.
In recongnising this fundamental truth, the UCA is committed to a journey of learning about what it means to practically live out this affirmation.
A resource for National Reconcilaition Week 2020, a time to reflect on our Church’s reconciliation journey, to retell stories of when we have walked together as First and Second Peoples and to think about how we continue that journey.
A resource explaining the significance of what it means to Acknowledge the First Peoples of this land whenever we gather and its importance in the Uniting Church, including many examples of what you might say.
Join us in walking together as First and Second Peoples who see a destiny together, as we pray and work toward the full expression of our reconciliation in Jesus Christ.
