Worship services on reconciliation

The UN Year of Reconciliation in 2009 was observed at the WCC Executive Committee meeting in February with a public hearing in the Ecumenical Centre and morning prayers in the chapel of the Ecumenical Institute in Bossey.

We hope that this sequence of worship outlines will inspire your congregation to engage actively in the UN campaign on reconciliation.

You will find here a series of four morning prayers focusing on these themes as the guiding principle for the WCC executive committee worship. The worship outlines are put together in such a way that they follow one another, as a connecting link they have a symbolic action using a simple flower pot. Please feel free to adapt the texts and the suggested songs according to your own context.
