The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Friday, January 18, 2013 to Friday, January 25, 2013

An annual event in the global ecumenical movement, the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity will be observed January 18-25, 2013, in the northern global hemisphere.  This week celebrates the great diversity of ways of adoring God.  Pulpits are exchanged and special ecumenical worship services are arranged.  Worship resources and materials that can be adapted for local settings have been prepared and published by the Commission on Faith and Order of the World Council of Churches and the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity.

With what shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before God on high? Shall I come before him with burnt-offerings, with calves a year old? Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, with tens of thousands of rivers of oil? Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:6-8)
