This year marks the 78th years of the atomic bombing in Hiroshima and the end of World War II.
August 6 is a significant day not only for the Hibakusha, their families and bereaved families, and the people living in Hiroshima, but also for those who wish for the abolition of nuclear weapons and international peace.
However, there are still many people in the world suffering from conflicts. It is the role of religious leaders to listen to the voiceless and keep praying for the peace in our world.
Through the prayer on August 6, faith leaders from various backgrounds will join their hearts in prayer for peace in the world.
On this day Religions for Peace Australia will be joined by faith leaders both men and women from RfP Japan, Korea, New Zealand, the Asia-Pacific Women of Faith Network and the Asia-Pacific Interfaith Youth Network. There will be Buddhist, Christian, Hindu and Muslim prayers and meditations.
We hope many of you will join us.
