The campaign is encouraging churches, schools and organisations across Australia to display messages of peace on their public noticeboards throughout the month of May. Participants will be asked to take a photo of their sign and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org so the signs can be shared on the campaign Facebook and Instagram pages. Suggested messages are available on the campaign website https://giveusasign.org/ Individuals are also encouraged to create their own messages of peace and email them in for sharing online – creativity is welcomed!
Bishop Bill Wright is encouraging the diocesan community to get behind the campaign.
“'Peace be with you’. This was the routine greeting of the risen Christ to his disciples, marking his church as a community of peace and a promoter of peace. The 'Give Us A Sign' campaign is a contemporary expression of the ancient commission to work for peace among all peoples. I hope it will be widespread and effective,” Bishop Bill said.
