Prayers for Peaceful Reunification of Korean Peninsula

On 13 August the PCANZ is invited to join with churches worldwide in a show of solidarity with Korean churches by joining a “Sunday of Prayer for the Peaceful Reunification of the Korean Peninsula.”

The World Council of Churches (WCC) says the theme for the prayer is based on Romans 14:19: “Let us then pursue what makes for peace and for mutual up-building.”

The day of prayer occurs two days before Liberation Day in Korea (15 August), during which people celebrate Korea’s liberation from Japanese colonisation. See WCC for more information and for:
