“Do good; seek justice”
2023 National Workshop on Christian Unity
comes to Milwaukee, WI , May 8-11, 2023
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.
We come together as ecumenists to take up the key question posed by the 2023 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity: “How can we live our unity as Christians so as to confront the evils and injustices of our time?” We pray that the “work” of this year’s Workshop may increase our understanding of the relationship between unity and justice and renew our desire and commitment to do good and seek justice for all of God’s people.
The National Workshop on Christian Unity has advanced unity and reconciliation among various Christian communities for more than 50 years. The Workshop continues to be the only gathering of its kind at a national level in the world. The annual event brings together ecumenical representatives, ecumenists, and interested members from all churches who share one faith, one baptism in Jesus Christ.
In order to love our neighbors, we encourage vaccination and masking as appropriate. The NWCU will follow the local protocols at the time of the event.
