World comes together in prayer
Women, men, and children in more than 170 countries and regions celebrate World Day of Prayer on March 2 or a week later if weather causes treacherous travel.
This year, the women of the World Day of Prayer Committee of Suriname call us to worship considering the words: "All God's Creation is Very Good!" Concepts of climate change, natural disasters, pollution and human abuse of the environment will be explored.
Worship services will be held at 1:30 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church in Gordon, and the ladies of First Presbyterian Church in Solon Springs are hostesses. Churches in Minong, Gordon and Solon Springs joined together in the planning, welcoming men and women of all faiths.
World Day of Prayer is a worldwide ecumenical movement of Christian women of many traditions who come together to observe a common day of prayer each year on the first Friday in March.
World Day of Prayer was founded on the idea that prayer and action are inseparable in the service of God's kingdom. Services begin at sunrise in the Pacific and follow the sun across the globe on the day of celebration. Each year a different country's committee serves as the writers of the World Day of Prayer worship service.
