Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Published: 6th December 2021

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is traditionally held between 18-25 January.

The theme for this year was chosen by the Middle East Council of Churches:

“We saw the star in the East, and we came to worship him” (Matthew 2:2).

More than ever, in the difficult times we’ve witnessed, we need a light that shines in the darkness and that light is a gift, an indication of God’s loving presence for all humanity. The Magi reveal to us the unity of all nations desired by God. They travel from far-off countries, and represent diverse cultures, yet they are driven by the same hunger to see and know the new-born king.

Christians are called to be a sign to the world of God bringing about this unity that he desires. Drawn from different cultures, races and languages, Christians share in a common search for Christ and a common desire to worship him. The mission of the Christian people, therefore, is to be a sign like the star, to lead all to Christ, and to be the means by which God is bringing about the unity of all peoples.
