Canadian Council of Churches - 75 Years

2023 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity Theme

The 2023 theme of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, chosen by the Minnesota Council of Churches (USA), is “Do good; seek justice.” Based on Isaiah 1:12-17, the international theme and materials call Christians to recognize that the divisions between our churches and confessions cannot be separated from the divisions within the wider human family.

Isaiah challenged God’s people in his day to learn to do good together; to seek justice together, to rescue the oppressed together, to defend the orphan and plead for the widow together. The prophet’s challenge applies equally to us today. How can we live our unity as Christians so as to confront the evils and injustices of our time? How can we engage in dialogue, increase awareness, understanding and insight about one another’s lived experiences?
