Week of Prayer for Christian Unity Concluding Service, Resurrection Parish, Regina

Rev. Amanda Currie

The theme chosen by the Christian Churches of Indonesia for this year’s Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is “Justice, and only justice, you shall pursue.” But the first thing I noticed about the theme text from Deuteronomy is that it doesn’t ONLY focus on justice, but also includes a long section about worship.

Purim Party at Beth Jacob Synagogue

PURIM PARTY AT BETH JACOB SYNAGOGUE

by Frank Flegel

The celebration of Purim is one of the most joyful holidays in the Jewish calendar. It celebrates a time in ancient Persia when the annihilation of the Jews was ordered by the king at the request of his Prime Minister Haman, but they were saved by the intervention of the beautiful Queen Esther.

The story is called the Megillat (the book of Esther) and is read in its entirety during the celebration.

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

By Frank Flegel

Participants praying for Christian unity formed a circle around the perimeter of the nave of the church. They prayed for peace, they prayed for justice, they prayed for reconciliation, and then they linked arms to connect their circle and prayed together The Lord’s Prayer to end the annual service of prayer for Christian unity.
