2019 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity:
Justice and Only Justice You Shall Pursue
The theme for the 2019 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity comes to us from the Indonesian Church: “Justice, and only justice, you shall pursue” (Deuteronomy 16:18-20).
This year’s theme calls us to move from shared prayer to shared action. Drawing on the traditional values of Bhineka Tunggal Ika (Unity in Diversity) and gotong royong (living in solidarity and by collaboration), Indonesian Christians invite us to be a united witness, and an agent of Christ’s healing grace in a broken world, by making specific commitments to justice, equality, and unity.
This worship service emphasizes the importance of moving from our discourses about unity, justice and mercy to action and concrete commitment, and to acts of unity, justice and mercy in our personal lives and in the life of our Christian communities.
