‘Salt of the Earth’ – Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, 18-25 January

Salt of the EarthThe 2016 material was prepared for worldwide use by the Christians of Latvia, and adapted by the Britain and Ireland writers group, based around the verses 1 Peter 2:9-10.

Peter’s first letter is an encouragement to the newly baptised to live holy lives and to answer the calling shared by all the baptised to proclaim the mighty acts of the Lord.

Today, Latvia is a crossroads where Roman Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox regions meet.  Because of this unique location, it is home to Christians of many different traditions, but no single one of them is dominant.
