· Sent by the General Secretary of the CEC to support the initiative ·
In recent days an apeal was launched by the General Secretary of the CEC, Guy Liagre, calling all 115 member churches in the Conference of European Churches to join in the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (18-25 January). “Praying together of the unity of the Church,” reads a press release from the General Secretary, “is the strongest way for our 115 member churches to show their ecumenical spirit.”
Referring the theme of this year - “Has Christ been divided?” (cf. Cor 1:1-17) – Liagre adds: “As individual Christians and communities, we regard Paul’s categorical statement that ‘Christ cannot be divided’ as a call to prayer and to an examination of conscience”.
