World Day of Prayer returns to Creston

Web Lead

WOMEN’S INTER-CHURCH COUNCIL OF CANADA

On March 4, the women of Chile invite us to reflect on the many gifts God has given each of us — and our call to share those gifts. Join with them in the World Day of Prayer celebration as they ask a question that draws us into the Bible, into the real context of Chilean lives and communities. There are several steps that will be taken together as the question “How Many Loaves Have You?” is addressed.

The Republic of Chile stretches between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes mountain range in the extreme southwest of South America. It borders to the north with Peru, and Bolivia and Argentina to the east, with Antarctica to the south and the pacific Ocean to the west.

In the 16th century, Spanish explorers came to Chile and went on to conquer it, although there was strong resistance from the indigenous peoples, especially the Mapuches in the south. The conflict went on for four centuries and continues even today with disputes about the ownership of their lands. Chile began its independence on Sept. 18, 1810, the date established at National Independence Day.

Please join the World Day of Prayer service, and invite your friends and family to attend and learn more about Chile and its unique culture and heritage. Join Christians in more than 170 countries around the world and 2,000 communities across Canada who will gather on the World Day of Prayer to pray and act in solidarity with the people of Chile.

A local World Day of Prayer service will be held at 3 p.m. at the Redeemer Lutheran Church. For more information, contact Betty at 250-428-7994 or visit www.wicc.org.
