Week of Prayer of Christian Unity Service
Week of Prayer for Christian Unity Service for Churches Together inLeek and District
“Salt of the Earth”
Ecumenical Service as prepared by Churches Together in Britain and Ireland
This year we are given the opportunity to reflect upon our Christian vocation to be salt and light, to be one in Christ, and to work together in service to our local community and to the world. Like the churches of Latvia (who brought these matters forward as the theme for this year) you will have your particular journey to tell of.
The theme draws on the words of Jesus in Matthew’s Gospel which tells us that as his disciples we are to be light to the world and salt of the earth; the very things that s human beings we cannot live without.
