As part of our focus for 2023 on peace and justice for Myanmar, the BUV, in collaboration with Whitley College, co-hosted an event on ‘Conflict, Violence, and a Just Future in Myanmar’. Guest speakers included Rev Associate Professor Ellen Jamir from Nagaland (Oriental Theological Seminary) and Dr David Moe (Yale University).
This was an important conversation as we heard stories of conflict, trauma, resiliency, and hope. We also brainstormed ways in which the wider BUV churches and community can respond and stand in solidarity with our siblings from Myanmar.
You too can join in solidarity by joining with us in our Stand with Myanmar Appeal in partnership with Baptist Mission Australia – join with us on Sunday April 30th for MYANMAR SUNDAY (or at another suitable time) when we are calling churches to join together to pray for, advocate and raise funds for the people of Myanmar, particularly those of the Karen, Chin and Kachin states.
