More than 300 members of the Uniting Church in Australia met last month at the 14thtriennial Assembly, held in Perth. Church gatherings such as this represent a microcosm of issues facing society. Our relationship with Australia’s First peoples, multiculturalism, same-gender marriage, asylum seeker policies and foreign aid were just some of the subjects discussed throughout the eight days. This month, Crosslightbrings you a snapshot of news and reflections from Assembly.

All of the August Crosslight stories are available here. Crosslight is also available in digital form, so you can read it from your iPad or tablet device.
If you are not able to get to a Uniting Church congregation but would like to continue to receive Crosslight each month, we can arrange to deliver it to you, whether you are in Australia or overseas. Subscribe here to receive Crosslight in your letterbox every month.
