PEACE messages based on Fiji's movement towards the 2014 general elections will be released soon by the country's Christian church leaders.
This will be the outcome of the two-day Pacific Symposium organised by the World Association for Christian Communications (WACC) in Suva this week.
Citizens Constitutional Forum head Reverend Akuila Yabaki said it was a challenge for churches to come together and work out their message to society. However, he said the conference was successful as the church leaders were now working on a program timeline to return Fiji to democracy.
"At certain point the same voices need to come together and speak, so we are laying here the fundamentals to make our move possible," Mr Yabaki said during an interview yesterday.
"This is a unifying movement that churches are speaking together from the same page."
He said in the world today, when the churches spoke together, they got attention from all over and in terms of population and statistics. In Fiji, the Christian population is very significant.
Mr Yabaki said numerical strength should be applied in speaking for peace and the message "Communications rights for peace" should be applied to the peace-making process rather than working for your own rights.
Pastor Wame Sausau, of the SDA Church, said it was important for church leaders to work together to define the common vision of moving forward as a Christian community.
"We will need to speak what the government needs to hear, whether government accepts it or not," Mr Sausau said.
He said churches had a lot of things in common even though they were miles apart in terms of doctrine teachings. "But there are so many things that unite us which make us work together."
