Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Today, January 18, 2010 marks the beginning of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity in the northern hemisphere nations. This year the theme is “You are witnesses of these things 2010,” based on Luke 24:48. It also marks the 100 anniversary of the World Mission Conference held in Edinburgh in 1910, which was one of the inspiring events of the early 20th century ecumenical movement.
