Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

 * Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2014: “Has Christ Been Divided” – 1 Corinthians 1:1-17 – will be marked around the world Jan. 18-26. Find prayer resources and reflections online at:  www.ecumenism.net/wpcu

Resources for this year’s Week of Prayer for Christian Unity were developed by a team from across Canada, reflecting the Canadian experience of cultural, linguistic, regional, and religious diversity. The theme is drawn from Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians where he addresses the divisions in the community, challenging us to see the gifts that God has bestowed on our neighbours and to heal the divisions within Christ’s body.
