Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 18-25 January

This year’s theme, “That All May Be Free”, is based on Exodus 15, with material prepared in the Caribbean.

The themes of the daily material raise some of the contemporary issues addressed by the churches of the Caribbean.

  • The Caribbean Churches work together to heal the wounds in the body of Christ.
  • Reconciliation demands repentance, reparation and the healing of memories.
  • The whole Church is called to be both a sign and an active agent of this reconciliation.

“The chosen passage allows us to see that the road to unity must often pass through a communal experience of suffering. Although our liberation and salvation is at God’s initiative, human agencies are engaged in their realisation. Christian participate in God’s ministry of reconciliation, yet our divisions hamper our witness to a world in need of God’s healing.”

(from Churches Together in Britain and Ireland)
