Anabaptist World Fellowship Sunday 2018 - Holy Spirit Transforming Us (French, Spanish, German, and Dutch included)
World Fellowship Sunday is an opportunity to remind our communities of faith that we are all part of one body made up of many tribes, languages and nations (Revelation 7:9). It is an invitation to visibly proclaim that now there is no discrimination among us on the basis of race, social status or gender (Galatians 3:28). It is a special day on which to show that we are living a new life in a new society where we mutually support one another, carry those who suffer, serve the world and interdependently learn from one another what it means to follow Jesus. On this day, we celebrate that, in Christ, and by the power of the Holy Spirit, the cultural and national boundaries that separate us have been overcome by the cross.
Each year, different churches that are part of our global community prepare guiding material that can be used for World Fellowship Sunday. Taking into account that the Anabaptist renewal movement of the 1500s was deeply shaped by the Spirit, the churches in Africa have prepared materials with the theme “Holy Spirit Transforming Us” for 2018 (for 21 January or any Sunday that is convenient for your congregation). It is because of the work of the Holy Spirit that we as Christians – in Africa and all over the world – persevere with hope in the face of overwhelming challenges.
The materials contain biblical texts, prayers, song suggestions, sermon ideas, stories and other resources. We hope that these materials enable the preparations for World Fellowship Sunday in each local congregation.
