The July edition of Crosslight is now available online and in your congregations.
This month’s front page is an image from a cultural diversity festival at Glen Waverley Uniting Church in May. Members of the Chollo community, made up of Uniting Church members of Sudanese heritage, joined more than 200 people from a range of cultural backgrounds to mark 30 years since the Uniting Church in Australia declared itself a multicultural church.
