Hundreds of countries across the world will observe from Wednesday, Jan. 18, until Jan.25, the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (Ecumenical Week), which promotes prayer and dialogue for the unity of Christian churches.

The Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and the Commission on Faith and Order of the World Council of Churches said the theme for this year’s observance is “We Will All Be Changed by the Victory of Our Lord Jesus Christ.” 

Taken from 1 Corinthians 15:51-58, the theme highlights what Saint Paul said: “Anyone who is in Christ is a new creation and we are called to live as children in the light.” 

VIA CALGARY: "Ecumenical worship services which offer an opportunity to draw together Christians from a variety of different backgrounds that helps us to unite us in Christ and to one another. That's basically what the week is for."

The theme is based on the following biblical passage from Corinthians: "We will all be changed by the victory of our Lord Jesus Christ."

"The word 'victory' there is not meant in triumphalist terms, but rather Paul in Corinthians talks about victory in Christ when it's servanthood. Of service. When it's of loss and sacrifice," Kim says.

"So the Polish churches have understood that idea of victory and have tried to communicate through this week of prayer liturgy in terms of how we understood victory as Christians. It's not about winning and power. About being triumphant, but rather about serving, giving, sacrificing. That's the focus.
