This year’s Week of Prayer for Christian Unity will see different Christian leaders coming together to share their experiences at a forum.
Speakers from the Anglican, Methodist and Mar Thoma Syrian Churches will speak on topics such as prayer and fellowship based on this year’s theme – “They devoted themselves to the apostles teaching, fellowship, to the breaking of bread and prayer” (Acts 2: 42-47).
“It is our hope that a format of this kind may begin to stimulate conversations during the refreshment time on the sharings, and that it will continue to encourage further informal and frequent conversations during year,” said Good Shepherd Sr Elizabeth Lim, who is on the Archdiocesan Council For Inter-Religious and Ecumenical Dialogue (IRED)
The forum will be held on Monday, Jan 24, at the Church of Divine Mercy at 8 pm. Monsignor Eugene Vaz will be the moderator. The evening will begin with prayers, including Taize-style prayers, as an introduction to the sharing.
On Wednesday, Jan 19, a prayer service, followed by fellowship will be held at the Mar Thoma Syrian Church at 29 Jalan Keli in Upper Thomson Road, near to Church of the Holy Spirit, at 8 pm.
