United Church in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands (UCJCI) Moderator Rt Rev Dr Gordon Cowans had an article for Jamaica’s Independence Day in August published by Jamaica newspaper The Gleaner. He wrote about how the UCJCI, through its antecedent denominations, has a “cherished heritage of being proactive and responsive as a missional church to the needs of (their) communities and to support initiatives, for example, for more responsible use of land assets and measures to address poverty and generate decent employment opportunities, particularly for women, youth, and persons with disabilities.”
Dr Cowans reiterated UCJCI’s commitment to “support the national and regional mobilisation to seek the payment of reparatory justice from Britain for native genocide, African enslavement, deceptive Indian indentureship, other colonial injustices, and the continuing legacies of colonialism”.
