GC 43 Proposal: AN URGENT CALL FOR PEACE ACCORD IN THE KOREAN PENINSULA

Origin: St. John’s Pastoral Charge, Northern Waters Presbytery, Toronto Conference

1. What is the issue?

For over half a century, the people of the Korean Peninsula have lived under an Armistice which was
intended to be a temporary solution to the Korean War. Recent events suggest that there is
potential for change in this situation.
 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.” (Matthew 5:9)
 “So then we pursue the things which make for peace and the building up of one
another.” (Romans 14:19)
We believe God is calling us to:

a) build global partnership to work together to bring permanent peace in the Korean peninsula.
b) publicly support peace talks among the USA, North Korea, South Korea, and China to replace the
armistice of the Korean War with a peace treaty.

2. Why is this issue important?

a) The United Church of Canada has been committed to God’s mission of Justice and Peace in the Korean Peninsula since the late 19th century, sending missionaries and overseas personnel to the
region.

b) At the end of the Second World War in 1945, The United States of America and the Soviet Union divided the Korean Peninsula into North and South, along the 38th Parallel. This division created conflict between the two Koreas. In 1950, war broke out when the North decided to unify the Peninsula. Canada contributed over 26,000 military personnel to the United Nations forces opposing this move. Active fighting ceased with the signing of an Armistice Agreement between North Korea and the United States of America which created a demilitarized zone. This ontinues to the present.

There is no peace. In recent times, the United States of America has heightened the tension with North Korea, increasing its isolation and resulting in an escalation of the nuclear threat to the world. However, events around the 2018 Olympics appear to have improved the relationship between North and South Korea. Because of this, there is an expectation for a summit to occur between North Korea and The United States of America. It is important for the United Church of Canada, at this time, to renew its commitment to God’s mission in Korea by appealing to our government to become involved in the making of a permanent peace agreement in the Korean peninsula.

c) The United Church of Canada is in long-term global partnership with the National Council of Churches in Korea (NCCK – South Korea) and the Presbyterian Church in the Republic of Korea (PROK – South Korea). We have sent Overseas Personnel to South Korea but stopped sending to North Korea after the 1950 Korean War.

d) Through the Pyeong Chang 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, the Korean people have demonstrated their desire and eagerness for peaceful unification to the whole world and showed the real obstacles to bringing peace to the peninsula. The peace agreement between two Koreas would definitely release political tension in the peninsula and surrounding area. To demonstrate our commitment to God’s Justice and Peace, it is important that the United Church of Canada demonstrate its support to the Korean people.

3. How might the General Council respond to the issue?

The 43rd General Council is asked to take the following actions:
a) Join other global partners in working for peace, justice, and reunification in the Korean Peninsula.

b) Advocate for the importance of peace talks between North Korea and the United States of America to replace the armistice of the Korean War with a peace treaty.

c) Call on the Canadian government to support a permanent peace treaty between North Korea and the United States of America (South Korea)

d) Appeal to the United Nations to stop the economic sanctions against North Korea for
humanitarian reasons.

e) Send United Church of Canada Overseas Personnel to North Korea to work together with the churches in North Korea in addition to the current work ongoing in South Korea.

f) Develop worship and education resources for peace, justice, and reunification in the Korean peninsula and recognize the Sunday closest to August 15th, Korean Independence Liberation Day, as the “Sunday of Prayer for the Peaceful Reunification of the Korean Peninsula

4. For the body transmitting this proposal to the General Council:
