Day 6: Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2014

Praying together for Christian Unity …

Sisters of the Holy Family

DAY 6 Together… we seek to be in agreement

Judges 4:1-9 If you go with me, I will go
Psalm 34:1-14 Seek peace, and pursue it
1 Corinthians 1:10-15 Be united in the same mind and the same purpose
Luke 22:24-30 A dispute also arose among them

Three points for reflection

  • The disunity described in 1 Corinthians 1:12-13 reflects a distortion of the gospel, undermining the integrity of the message of Christ. To acknowledge conflict and division, as Chloe’s people did, is the first step to establishing unity.
  • Women like Deborah and Chloe raise a prophetic voice among God’s people in times of conflict and division, confronting us with the need to be reconciled. Such prophetic voices may enable people to gather in renewed unity for action.
  • As we strive to be united in the same mind and the same purpose, we are called to seek the Lord and his peace as the psalmist wrote.
