Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

January 18-25, 2017

As part of our ecumenical mission, we are all encouraged do join our brothers and sisters in our various churches around the world in praying that we will all be one, as Jesus prayed on the eve of His crucifixion. The Sword of the Spirit has prepared a booklet containing the prayers and reflections being used by all those participating in the Week throughout the world. You can get it here in two ways:

Welcome to the Word of Life website! We are Christians from various churches and traditions, joined together as a community of disciples on mission. While we remain faithful members of our home churches and parishes, we believe that we are called by the Lord to share our lives in a special way, and to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ as a sign of Christian unity and a means of its growth. Our members live in the southeast Michigan area, mostly in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti, with some living and working in Detroit. Please explore our website and learn more about us.  For more information, contact the Community Office at (734) 677-3662 or by e-mail at office@wordoflifecommunity.org.
