Anabaptist World Fellowship Sunday 2019 - Justice on the Journey: Migration and the Anabaptist Story (French, Spanish, and German 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 WFS. The theme for WFS 2019 is “Justice on the Journey: Migration and the Anabaptist Story”, prepared out of the experience of our Latin American churches. In 2019 World Fellowship Sunday will be on Sunday 20 January, or any Sunday that is convenient for your congregation. The Anabaptist story is frequently one of migration and mission, experiencing the grace of God in leaving one place for another, and in welcoming the foreigner. The materials contain biblical texts, prayers, song suggestions, sermon ideas, stories and other resources. We hope that these materials enable the preparations for WFS in each local congregation.
The materials contain biblical texts, prayers, song suggestions, sermon ideas, stories, questions or reflection, ideas for study time and Sunday school, and other resources. We hope that these materials enable the preparations for World Fellowship Sunday in each local congregation.
