The Uniting Church is at a crossroads and the next Synod in Session will be one of the most important decision-making events in the history of our church. Critical decisions will be made that will shape the life of the church in the decades to come.
This imperative is echoed in the theme “Grow”, based on Ephesians 4:15–16.
“But speaking the truth in love, we must grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by every ligament with which it is equipped, as each part is working properly, promotes the body’s growth in building itself up in love.”
I urge you to carefully consider who you will nominate in 2020. Whose voices will we hear as we gather at the crossroads?
Now, more than ever, our youth and young adults have a voice to offer. They will drive future strategy and they must be part of these discussions.
