Each year our brothers and sisters in the European Continental Province carry on the tradition of selecting Watchwords for the Unity Provinces, Mission Provinces and Unity Undertakings of the Moravian Church.
The Watchword for the worldwide Moravian Unity is:
“Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.” Romans 15:7
The Watchword for our Southern Province is drawn from the Daily Texts for May 9:
“Whom did you dread and fear so that you lied, and did not remember me?” Isaiah 57:11
“Peter remembered what Jesus had said: ‘Before the cock crows, you will deny me three times.’ And he went out and wept bitterly.” Matthew 26:75
We are invited to reflect on these texts throughout this year, and perhaps especially during this season of Lent.
