That –

(i) This Synod notes with concern that, in the current crisis in Indonesia, there have been violent attacks
against ethnic Chinese and Christians;

(ii) We urge our churches to pray that Almighty God might grant to all citizens of that great nation to live
in peace, dignity and security, and in particular that our brothers and sisters in Christ might be free to serve the Lord without fear;

(iii) I further move that our concern and our prayers be reported to His Excellency the Indonesian
Ambassador to Australia, and also to the Secretary General of the Indonesian Communion of Churches.
