During the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, we will be offering Daily Prayers Online each day at noon.
The 2021 theme – Abide in my love and you shall bear much fruit (John 15:5-9) – calls us to pray and to work for reconciliation and unity in the church, with our human family, and with all of creation. Drawing on the Gospel image of vine and branches, it invites us to nourish unity with God and with one another through contemplative silence, prayer, and common action. Grafted into Christ the vine as many diverse branches, may we bear rich fruit and create new ways of living, with respect for and communion with all of creation.
Please see the News Post each day to participate in the prayers as some will be prerecorded and shared at noon, while other days will take place live on Facebook.
Each day's news post will also provide some questions for reflection or discussion.
We are grateful for the resources created for this week by the Monastic Community of Grandchamp in Switzerland, as well as those from World Council of Churches, the Canadian Council of Churches, the Council of Churches of Britain and Ireland which we will be using in our orders of service this week.
