On Wednesday, January 22, 12:00 – 1:00 pm, during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (January 18-25): Graymoor Ecumenical & Interreligious Institute will host an ecumenical service of word, prayer, and contemplative ritual in the Interchurch Center Chapel. Co-presiding at the service will be:
- Fr. Jim Loughran, SA (Vicar General, Franciscan Friars of the Atonement; Director, GEII)
- Bishop Paul Egensteiner (Bishop, Metro NY Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America)
- Rev. LaKeesha Walrond, PhD (President, New York Theological Seminary)
- Fr. Nicolas Kazarian, PhD (Ecumenical Officer, Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America)
The service will be an opportunity to bring people together from across the Christian family to join in reflection together on this year’s theme of “unusual kindness” (Acts 28) shown to the stranger in a time of deepening fear, hostility, and division. Bishop Egensteiner will preach, and coffee and conversation will follow the service. All are welcome!
