Message from the Chair
… that next year’s Day of Prayer will happen. What form our services will take is less certain but it will happen because, as I have said before, the Day of Prayer is as much a fixture in the world church’s calendar as the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity or Peace Sunday.
Plans are going ahead for Preparation Days beginning at the end of September and continuing through to the beginning of February next year. Sadly, some have had to be cancelled but a few will still be taking place as planned and many are going ahead via Zoom.
One of the advantages of Zoom is that you can join a meeting anywhere in the country – or indeed in the world – if you have an invitation. So, whilst it is of course preferable to attend one local to you, this year it will be possible to go to a Preparation Day anywhere. So, if the Preparation day you normally attend is not happening or if that date is not convenient for you, why not have a look at alternatives?
The materials for the 2022 service – our service – have been distributed to National Committees throughout the world. As you know, the title is ‘I know the plans I have for you’. This is part of Jeremiah 29: 11 and the verse continues with the promise: ‘Plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.’
In these uncertain times, may we hold on to this promise and look forward to the future with confidence.
