Observe Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, Even if Late

January 20, 2010

Although the events in Haiti have claimed much of our prayer focus in recent days, the Commission on Christian Unity and Interreligious Concerns of the California-Nevada Annual Conference reminds us that January 18-25 is the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.

CCUIC asks that, in addition to lifting up this concern, you consider inviting a neighbor congregation to attend a service or prayer gathering at your church as an observance of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, even though it may not be at the designated time. Such an invitation is always timely, regardless of the week!
 
 
Another opportunity to celebrate our oneness in Christ presents itself on March 5, 2010, World Day of Prayer. For materials, visit: http://www.wdpusa.org/about.html
 
If you are planning an ecumenical event, please let the Commission on Christian Unity and Interreligious Concerns know, by contacting Heather Leslie Hammer, CCUIC Chair, at revheather.stjohnsrp@earthlink.net. And please remember to take photos at such events and email them to CCUIC via revheather.stjohnsrp@earthlink.net.
