Document Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2010

John Gibaut, director of the Faith and Order Commission of the World Council of Churches. He was preaching on 18 January 2010 in a service at the WCC headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, to mark the beginning of the annual Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, and as churches around the world prepare to mark the centenary of the 1910 conference.
