United by the same vision,
The same passion,
The same mission!
The vision of the
In 1944 Paul Couturier, a French priest and a pioneer of “spiritual ecumenism” shared his vision:
“If every Thursday evening, the weekly commemoration of Holy Thursday, an increasing multitude of Christians of all denominations formed a sort of huge network enfolding the earth, like a vast invisible monastery into which everyone was to be engrossed in prayer of Christ for unity, wouldn’t that be the dawn of Christian unity breaking over the world? Is it not the deep and fervent attitude of spiritual emulation that the Father is waiting for to realise the visible unity of the body of the Church, to work all the miracles required to gather in His invisible Church all those who love Him and who have been visibly marked by the baptismal seal?”
A “Net for God” Mission
Since 2000 Net For God, which arose from this vision, has become an extensive world network:
PRAYER NETWORK for unity and peace between Christian countries, cultures and denominations. Each Thursday evening the members of the Net for God network gather to pray for the Unity of Christians.
Every month a film addresses a topical issue about unity and bears witness to the love of God at work in the world.
The members from the various Christian churches work and bear witness together to hasten the coming of the Kingdom of Heaven to the earth.
A Team on a Mission
To forge, develop and organise this network a number of brothers and sisters of the Community pray and work together in the ImaGO house in Villeneuve d’Ascq (Lille). The Net for God team is accompanied in its projects by Neuf Media, a video production workshop of the Chemin Neuf Community. Finally, every year the Media School allows various youngsters from different countries and Churches to come over to train to become “web missionaries”.
The Net for God mission is supported by many volunteers and donors, who enable it to complete its various evangelisation projects.
THE PASSION FOR UNITY
