Witnessing to the God of Life: Reformation Sunday Worship Service
The World Communion of Reformed Churches in partnership with the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship leads the annual Reformation Day global worship service in Rome, Italy.
“In our Reformation worship last year, we showed the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in our day-to-day lives, even as we celebrated the many wonderful ways God was at work in our Communion,” said Najla Kassab, WCRC president. “This year, even as the world continues to emerge from the pandemic and faces ongoing existential crises, we want to remind everyone that ‘we live under the promise that Jesus Christ came so that all might have life in fullness,’ as the Accra Confession states.”
“The theme of the service honors the contribution of Kim Yong-Bock, who died in April 2022, to ecumenical theology. In the service we will give thanks and praise to the God of Life and pray for God’s blessing on the Reformed churches, the global church, and the entire creation, which has been groaning until now, but in hope ‘will be set free from its bondage to decay and will obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God,'” said Kathy Smith, CICW senior associate director, citing Romans 8.
Watch the worship service at the Waldensian Church at the Piazza Cavour Rome, Italy.
