The Well is Deep posterThe Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is traditionally observed from the 18th to the 25th January – the octave of St. Peter and St. Paul.

The theme for the week of prayer in 2015 comes from the gospel of John: “Jesus said to her: ‘Give me to drink’.”

It was proposed by a group of Brazilian Christians called together by the National Council of Christian Churches of Brazil (CONIC).

The biblical gesture of offering water to whomever arrives, as a way of welcoming and sharing, is something that is repeated in all regions of Brazil.

The proposed study and meditation on the story of Jesus meeting a Samaritan woman at the well is to help people and communities to realize the dialogical dimension of the project of Jesus, which we call the Kingdom of God.
