Nothing that we do in love is ever wasted.

That was the central message of the Rev. Dr. Catherine MacLean, from St. Paul's United Church, when reflecting on the theme of this year's Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, held this year Jan. 18 to 25.

"Rev. Larry Kochendorfer (an Evangelical Lutheran) reminded us that one of the things we have in common as Christians is our anxiety," said the Rev. MacLean. "It is an acknowledgement of what we all feel, the fear that we have for our churches and ourselves. It brings us humility to acknowledge that we feel anxiety."
