Story: Interdenominational Christianity

Jesus March, 1972

Jesus March, 1972

Enthusiastic 'Jesus marchers' gathered in Wellington in March 1972. Several of them are holding up one finger to signify their belief that Jesus is the 'one way' to God. The marches were held all around New Zealand during 1972, partly in protest against perceived sexual permissiveness in society. People from every major Christian denomination, including Catholics, took part.
