Ecumenical World Day of Prayer

St-John-Church-Boorowa-22

St John’s Anglican Church hosted Boorowa’s ecumenical World Day of Prayer event, followed by afternoon tea, on Friday the 18th of February.

The World Day of Prayer is a global ecumenical movement led by Christian women who welcome people to join in prayer and action for peace and justice.

The worship service enables participants to learn about how women of other countries, languages and cultures understand the Biblical passages in their context.

This year’s host countries were England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The three Christian denominations in Boorowa; Anglican, Catholic, and the Uniting Church; take it in turns to host the event.

This year’s organiser, Kathy Mason, said that the three churches were well represented in terms of presentation of the service and worshippers.

People who spoke during the service included Kathy Mason, Derek Mason, Bronwyn Fickel, Ruth Waddell and Deacon Patrick Whale.

The 2022 theme was “I know the plans I have for you” from Jeremiah 29: 11.

Scripture from Jeremiah was examined (Jeremiah 29: 1-14), and given the uncertainties we are all facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2022 theme was viewed as a balm of confidence, as it is an invitation to place trust in God in times of trial.

At the conclusion of the service, a lovely afternoon tea was hosted by St John’s Church, which gave worshippers the chance to fellowship with one another.

Next year the Boorowa Uniting Church will be hosting the World Day of Prayer.
