This year the World Day of Prayer Service was beautifully crafted by the Women of Slovenia under the slogan “Come all is ready“. And indeed it was – in Tain, Dornoch and Lairg. Splendid ecumenical gatherings in all three in which people from across the denominations took active parts.

The service was based on: Luke 14:15-24 – The Parable of the Great Banquet, when those invited all made their excuses and the Master of the House ordered his servants to “Go out at once into the streets and lanes of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind, and the lame.” The table was set following the guidance of the Women of Slovenia, to include symbols of their culture: bread (in the shape of a cross), wine, water, salt, carnations and rosemary.
