How to be a real winner
The theme of this year’s Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, “We shall all be changed by the victory of our Lord Jesus Christ,” asks us to consider the entrenched role of winners and losers in our society and then to move beyond such oppositional thinking. Our prayer this week is to reach toward the level of awareness where opposites like winners and losers are transcended and reconciled through the forces of love and compassion. That is the “victory” of this year’s theme. That is the mindset of Jesus. That kind of change, however, is going to take more than a week. Still, we must begin where we are. What will you do to put this prayer into action?
