Developed by the Minnesota Council of Churches in response to the injustice experienced by people of color in their state and beyond, the theme for the 2023 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, “Do Good; Seek Justice (Isaiah 1:17),” will serve as theme for NWCU 2023 as well. Theologian-in-Residence the Rev. Canon Stephanie Spellers will lead us in considering the theme under three sub-topics: listening to the biblical call to justice, lamenting the lack of justice in our world, and living into justice in our communities. Each day Workshop participants will join in table conversations around the praxis of justice facilitated by the Lombard Mennonite Peace Center.
LOPPW’s director will be one of the ELCA representatives speaking on a seminar panel on May 10.
