The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity – 28 May – 4 June, 2017

Attention: open in a new window. | Print |


The theme ‘Reconciliation – the Love of Christ compels us’, celebrates the irrevocable reconciliation that we have received through faith in Jesus Christ.  Christ’s love becomes the driving force that moves us beyond our division toward acts of reconciliation.

The preparatory work on the theme for this year’s week of prayer material was undertaken by a group of representatives of different Christian communities in Germany.  They decided to commemorate the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation as a Christusfest (an ecumenical celebration of Christ).  The Reformation was the occasion of a renewed focus on salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.  We rejoice in God’s salvation centered on the cross of Christ, who overcomes division and draws us together.
