September provided an opportunity for The United Church of Canada to be part of the World Council of Churches Assembly and to co-facilitate a workshop on the Korea Peace Appeal. Globally, 121,902 people have signed the Korea Peace Appeal.

At this eight-month mark of The United Church of Canada’s 10,000 Signature Korea Peace Appeal, the campaign has moved 2,812 people to sign the appeal.

Korea Peace Appeal champions continue to invite you to sign and to encourage others to participate. Some are taking some special initiatives. In particular, Willowdale Emmanuel United Church has invited the Rev. Eun-Kyung Kim, Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in the Republic of Korea, to Canada for an October visit, and champions will be encouraging members of the Diakonia of The United Church of Canada (DUCC) holding their National Gathering later this month to participate as well.

United Church people and communities of faith are encouraged to participate in this 10,000 Signature campaign by directing people to sign the Korea Peace Appeal petition online, or use a paper petition and then enter the information into the online petition, or e-mail  justice@united-church.ca  if you would like assistance with entering them.

Sign the Korea Peace Appeal today. Share it with others. #UCCanKoreaPeaceAppeal.

E-mail justice@united-church.ca  to become a Korea Peace Appeal Champion.
