NAIDOC Week 2022
June 29, 2022
During NAIDOC Week, the Uniting Church joins with the Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress (UAICC) in celebrating Australia’s First Peoples and their place at the heart of our nation and our church. This year's theme is Get Up! Stand up! Show Up!
Thanks to Palawa women Alison Overeem and Grace Williams from Leprena UAICC Tasmania for sharing this NAIDOC Week reflection - The Strength Within - To Takamuna Rrala (to stand, to rise up strong).
The reflection, written by Alison, is available below, in written form or as a video with graphics and production by Grace. Feel welcome to use these reflections in your worship throughout NAIDOC Week.
Keep an eye on the Assembly website and socials as we share Living the Covenant Locally resources, and a number of other stories and reflections over the next week.
