This month, leaders of several Canadian denominations and ecumenical bodies join the call for peace in Korea and publicly endorse the Korea Peace Appeal campaign as champions:
Pastor Peter Noteboom, General Secretary, Canadian Council of Churches
The Rev. Susan C. Johnson, National Bishop, Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada
Archbishop Linda Nicholls, Primate, Anglican Church of Canada
Jeanette Hanson, Director, International Witness, Mennonite Church Canada
The Rev. Dr. Daniel Scott, Moderator of the 146th General Assembly, The Presbyterian Church in Canada
Ms. Aisha Francis, Executive Director, KAIROS Canada
This brings the number of Korea Peace Appeal Champions to 40 individuals within The United Church of Canada, across Christian denominations, and in communities across Canada. Our colleagues at the Korea Peace Appeal in Korea tell us the number of Canadian signatures collected is now 1,397.
In this Easter season, the World Council of Churches invites us to pray with the National Council of Churches in Korea their 2022 Easter Prayer for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula (also available in Korean). As well, all are invited to A Call to Prayer and Action for Peace in Korea, a special livestream worship service with the Rev. Eun-kyung Kim, Moderator of The Presbyterian Church in the Republic of Korea, at 9:00 a.m. ET, 27 April 2022, on The United Church of Canada YouTube channel.
