Ecumenical Prayer Service celebrates annual Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
Dr. Gordon “Tim” Huffman, retired John H. F. Kuder Professor of Christian Mission at Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, will deliver the message. The Shelby Walker Male Chorus from Allen Temple AME Church will be providing special music for the worship celebration.
Begun in 1908, the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is celebrated each year in cities and towns across the country and around the world. The theme for the 2017 observance is Reconciliation -The Love of Christ Compels Us (2 Corinthians 5:14-20).
The theme and text for each year’s observance of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity are chosen and prepared by representatives of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and representatives of the World Council of Churches.
The worship service is offered to the community by Lutheran Church of the Resurrection as part of its commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Protestant Reformation and in thanksgiving for efforts of Lutheran and Roman Catholic congregations around the world making conscious and concerted efforts to heal past conflicts to move to communion in the present and future.
The public is cordially invited.
All are welcome to come and listen to Dr. Christopher Pramuk, Theology Professor at Xavier University, Author of “Hope Sings So Beautiful” Sunday, January 29, 2017, 6:00 p.m. Anderson Hills Christian Church 8119 Clough Pike (45244)
