THE Fiji Council of Churches (FCC) has expressed its support for the outcomes of the recent World Association for Christian Communication Pacific (WACC — Pacific) Symposium on Communication Rights for Peace.
The symposium, which took place last week in Suva, saw church leaders from around the country come together to discuss the importance of encouraging peace as the country nears the 2014 elections.
"The Fiji Council of Churches' objectives and functions include facilitating common action by the churches within Fiji on all matters where there is agreement or the possibility of agreement," a statement from FCC said yesterday.
"The Executive Committee has resolved to support the statement â€¦ in such an important message in the lead up to International Day of Peace and the journey towards democracy following elections in 2014."
With International Day of Peace being marked on the 21st of this month, the FCC acknowledged the symposium's participants and stakeholders for seizing the opportunity to create a space for peace where church leaders could discuss their ideas and approaches.
"The message is relevant and timely, and call to both the Christian community and the wider society to practise peace personally and corporately."
