A Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Message from Superintendent Joan Carr

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (January 18-25, 2020) is an annual ecumenical celebration. Christians around the world are invited to pray for the unity of all Christians, to reflect on scripture together, to participate in jointly organized ecumenical services, and to share fellowship.

This year’s Week of Prayer focuses on the country of Malta. The 2020 theme, “They showed us unusual kindness” (Acts 28:2), remembers the historic shipwreck of Paul on the island of Malta and calls us to a greater generosity to those in need.
