Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
This week is a significant ecumenical event with over 100 years of history. Since 1908, the eight days between January 18-25 have been set aside for Christians to remember who they are — a unified group with the same foundation in Jesus Christ. Christians from around the world join together in the same prayers prepared by a group from around the world, that the World Council of Churches and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity appoints.

Reflections on the Daily Themes for this year written by local participants will be posted on the Worship and Liturgy blog from Seattle University School of Theology and Ministry: http://worshipandliturgysustm.com/. The Student Christian Movement of India was invited to prepare the globally-shared resources for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2013 and they involved the All India Catholic University Federation and the National Council of Churches in India. This year’s Week of Prayer invites us to explore the well known biblical text of Micah 6:6-8, focusing upon the question what does God require of us as the main theme.
