2013 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity: What Does the Lord Require of Us?

2012, 4 pp
This year’s liturgy reflects the youthful character of the Student Christian Movement of India (SCMI). It takes into account the Dalit reality and offers an opportunity to share in their spirituality in this liturgy.

Particular elements of the liturgy come from the Indian Dalit context, which include the use of drums and the bhajan, which is a local way of singing the lyrics, affirming the Dalits’ faith in God. A third element, which is particular, is the sharing of the Testimony of Faith: Sarah, the Dalit that illustrates the Dalit spirituality of striving for justice, loving kindness, and walking in dignity with God (cf. Micah 6:6-8).

Christians in India should reject caste divisions, just as Christians worldwide should not accept the divisions among them: “Is Christ divided?” (1 Cor 1:13). For this reason, we gather in worship to pray for the unity that Christ wills for his Church, and we are called to break down the walls of divisions among and between us.
