Annual Ecumencial Service for ‘Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

The Annual Ecumencial Service for ‘Week of Prayer for Christian Unity’ will this year take place, on Sunday 19th May at 7.30pm in St. Columba’s Church, Douglas.

The theme this year is ONLY JUSTICE and the material comes from the Christian churches in Indonesia.
The Churches of Indonesia, speak out of a context of ethnic and religious diversity, and where there is a strong emphasis upon the need for a unity that is found in diversity, and one built on solidarity and collaboration. Yet they also highlight issues of economic injustice and how religious pluralism can face challenges in the face of radicalization.

This gives us an opportunity to reflect upon the context in which we pray for Christian unity.  How do divisions in our society contribute to divisions in the Church? How does injustice in our British and Irish contexts create challenges in pursuit of our shared life together?”

Let us continue to work together and pray that the Lord’s wish ‘that they all may be one’ will one day be fulfilled.
