The host country for WDP 2019 is Slovenia. The focus is on Jesus’ parable of the Great Dinner (in Lk. 14:15–24) with the theme “Come – Everything is Ready”.  One phrase in the worship service especially captures the ideas we will explore: “Welcoming God, in your love, you have prepared a table for all, and you inspire us to open our hearts and our homes to offer a place to the ones who are not yet at the table.” Who isn’t at your table yet? Who isn’t at your World Day of Prayer service . . . yet? The women of Slovenia challenge us all to widen our circles, to expand our communities.
