A year after the World Health Organization declared the spread of COVID-19 a pandemic, Mennonite World Conference is joining the World Council of Churches and other Christians in a week of prayer March 22-27. The week will invite a time of prayer and reflection on both the lament and the hope expressed and experienced across the world during what has been a year of unprecedented suffering, but also one when churches have worked together in ever new ways to adapt, respond and accompany communities through mental, physical, economical, spiritual, and environmental crises. “This is an opportunity to come together with Christians from around the world as an expression of being together in Christ,” says MWC general secretary César García. The week of prayer is convened with ecumenical partners (Mennonite World Conference, the World Conference of Churches, World Vision International and others), and will share prayers and spiritual resources produced in response to the pandemic.
