January 18: A Prayer for Spiritual Diversity - This day marks the beginning of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. Now, I have no objection to Christians everywhere seeking that spirit of unity in faith which brings people together in pursuit of holy ends. But our capacity for religious chauvinism has always troubled me, so I fear that, for some, their aspirations for Christian unity will be confused with their desire for doctrinal sameness. As a corrective, I will pray for spiritual diversity, knowing that a deeper unity can grow only from our awareness and appreciation of religious differences. Rev. Stefan M. Jonasson
Services begin at 11:00 a.m. at the Arborg Unitarian Church, Ingolfs Street at River Road, followed by light refreshments. Everyone welcome!
