Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
Saturday 18 to Sunday 25 January 2020
Here are some ways for us all to participate in this week of prayer:
Sword of the Spirit
Across the Sword of the Spirit we are invited to use the prayers and meditations in the booklet that was distributed after Sunday's meeting, (which may have reached you by post). There is an electronic copy here if you did not receive one, or if this is more convenient for you.
Churches Together in Acton have a program of events running (see attached flyer) mostly based at Oak Tree. There will be 24/7 prayer running once again, and some of us from Antioch will be praying through Sunday night / Monday morning! Please do sign-up for a prayer slot or come along to one of the services if you can.
Please also note the following from CHARIS, the recently created service team for Catholic Charismatic Renewal:
It is with joy that I announce that CHARIS has thought of actively joining the week of prayer for Christian unity which every year promotes the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of Christian Unity jointly with the Faith and Constitution Commission of the Ecumenical Council of Churches.
Our contribution as a charismatic family will be our prayer. That is why we have made a short meditation video for each day of the week from January 18 to 25. I therefore invite you to join us and the Church with your prayer. You can access the videos on our website.
We will be united together, as Pope Francis likes to say, to pray for the unity of the Body of Christ.
May God be glorified in us, in Antioch, and in his church as we seek to be the answer to Jesus prayer in John 17.
Articles by our members
We have lifted some articles from Living Bulwark written by some of our students, and reproduced them on a page of other testimonies. You can read material by Greg Potter, James Mead and Sarah Bick.
Then you can read our series of short pieces about our experience of the Christian life. The first was by Arthur Delargy, and then we got the experience of Karen Jordan, who joined us from our sister community in Mumbai. Dominic Perrem told us about his walk of faith, and continues it in Dublin, in the Community of Nazareth, and then we got Bob Bell too. Read them and be inspired!
We have an outreach to students at the London colleges called Koinonia. Their pages are worth a read!
