On January 24, 2022, The United Church of Canada launched its Korea Peace Appeal Ten Thousand Signature Campaign declaring, “70 years is enough. It’s time to end the Korean War.”
In 2018, the United Church’s 43rd General Council declared that we believe God is calling us to join with partners to work for peace, justice and reunification in the Korean peninsula. The 43rd General Council urged the church to address the suffering of the Korean people, which continues since the Korean War has not ended, some seven decades after it was begun. The Korea Peace Appeal is an opportunity for the United Church to renew our commitment to partnership in God’s mission in Korea.
The UCC has taken up the invitation — and challenge — from Korean partners to add Ten Thousand Signatures to the Korean Peace Appeal by July 2022.
Join the call to begin reaching out and organizing so we can reach that goal
