Nationwide Participation in the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

The ecumenical Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is taking place January 18-25, and the MC Canada community of faith is being invited to set aside time to pray.

Every January Christians around the world are invited to take part in this special week. Setting aside time to pray in solidarity with Christians from various denominations and backgrounds is a powerful witness. MC Canada Executive Minister Doug Klassen said, “When we unite in the ancient spiritual discipline of prayer, across national and political lines, our petitions do more than reach a listening God. We send a unifying message that Christians are built to lovingly care for humanity and all of creation.”

All who are part of the MC Canada faith family are encouraged to take part in a way meaningful to them. Resources and events are listed on the Week of Prayer website (https://www.weekofprayer.ca/).  In addition, the staff of each Region of MC Canada has been asked to ensure a prayer time takes place in their Region on a specific day. This could include taking part in ecumenical events in local communities, setting aside time to pray for unity as Regional staff, or planning prayer services with congregations.

MCA has been asked to focus on January 19. Executive Minister Tim Wiebe-Neufeld and Bridge Building Facilitator Suzanne Gross will include a time for prayer for unity when the Edmonton-area Inter-Mennonite Ministerial meets that morning at Holyrood Mennonite Church.

The days for focused prayer across our nationwide community of faith are:

Wednesday, January 18: MC British Columbia

Thursday, January 19: MC Alberta

Friday, January 20: MC Saskatchewan

Monday, January 23: MC Manitoba

Tuesday, January 24: MC Eastern Canada

Continue to keep the people of Myanmar in your prayers as conflict there continues, forcing people to leave their homes. 

Pastor Leng Tran of the Calgary Chin Christian Church reports that many cities and villages are struggling with food shortages as the transportation links are being used by the military. Food prices have significantly increased. Internet lines have been cut creating communication challenges. Children haven’t been in school for two years, since the coup, and now idle youth are damaging their lives with drugs and alcohol. Some pastors are being tortured, arrested and some churches have been burned down. 

Please pray for the Chin people both those in Myanmar and those who have left their homes and families behind. Consider making a donation to meet the urgent needs of the Chin people.

As leaders within Mennonite Church Canada, we commit ourselves anew to working for climate justice and a sustainable future for all God’s creation and all God’s children. We commit to engaging deeply as a nationwide community of faith, inviting congregations and regional churches into discernment regarding the ways we as a church can respond to the climate crisis.
