Prayer service promotes Christian unity

The Oklahoma Alliance for Liturgy and the Arts will present a prayer service to commemorate the 2014 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity at 4 p.m. Jan. 19 at Chapel Hill United Methodist Church, 2717 W Hefner Road. The service will include music, prayer, sacred readings and presentations by two speakers, the Rev. Robert Hayes Jr., bishop of the Oklahoma Conference of the United Methodist Church and the Oklahoma Indian Missionary Conference, and The Rev. William Tabbernee, executive director of the Oklahoma Conference of Churches. This marks the 107th annual observance of the Week of Prayer, which began in 1908. The observance lasts eight days, beginning Jan. 18 and concluding Jan. 25. The international theme chosen for the 2014 observance is “Has Christ Been Divided?,” taken from 1 Corinthians 1:13. The mission of the Oklahoma Alliance for Liturgy & the Arts, a Christian nonprofit interdenominational organization, is to enhance communal worship by promoting the visual and performing arts in Oklahoma churches.
