World Day of Prayer 2021 is Friday, March 5th
World Day of Prayer takes place internationally on the first Friday of March every year. In 2021 that will be March 5th If you can’t celebrate World Day of Prayer on the first Friday in March, choose another date that works for your community and celebrate in symbolic solidarity with women around the world! This year it is particularly important to be flexible. With all of the complications and disruptions due to the coronavirus – please have your service on another day or try a virtual service. Whatever you decide – be safe!
Through the worship service we hear the voices of the Vanuatu women, who invite us to focus on the Bible story in Matthew 7:24-27. Jesus tells a story about the kingdom of heaven using the image of a house and the land on which the house is built. Choosing the land on which to build the house is an important decision for people in Vanuatu. The combination of considering the terrain and the climate is crucial in a tropical archipelago located in the South Pacific Ocean prone to earthquakes, cyclones, volcanic eruptions and rising sea levels.
