“Reconciliation—The Love of Christ Compels Us” (2 Corinthians 5:14-20)

The 2017 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, Jan. 18-25, has the theme “Reconciliation—The Love of Christ Compels Us” (2 Corinthians 5:14-20). In a world marked by diversity in language and culture, we express our Christian faith in diverse ways.

During this week we are called to celebrate this diversity and be faithful to Christ’s call for the unity of his Church. All are invited to join with brothers and sisters of various churches in prayer, song, and witness to unity as followers of Christ.
