Camille's editorial of January 20, 2022: United and united!

While we are in the heart of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity which takes place from January 18 to 25, the news of the day invites us to solidarity and unity.

This night will take place "Night of Solidarity", a census operation of people on the street. Launched in France in 2018 by the city of Paris, this initiative takes on a national scale this year and will concern 27 municipalities.

During this annual operation, hundreds of volunteers and social workers crisscross the city to count people on the street and "better understand" their needs, "in order to best adapt emergency and social measures", explains the capital municipality.

This Thursday, January 20, the National Assembly has recognized and condemned for the first time, the genocide and crimes against humanity suffered by the Uyghurs in the People's Republic of China. A gesture of solidarity towards this Muslim people who are victims of serious persecution.

As Doors Open released its 2022 Global Christian Persecution Index yesterday, Illia Djadi, the organization's senior analyst on freedom of religion and belief in sub-Saharan Africa, spoke to Christian Today about the threats on Christians in West Africa.

A testimony to be found on the InfoChrétienne website who invites us to unite in prayer for our persecuted brothers and sisters in this region.

We can also join in prayer for the situation of Abdolreza Ali Haghnejad.

Abdolreza Ali Haghnejad is an Iranian pastor who was released from prison on December 30. The religious freedom organization Middle East Concern has just announced that the pastor has unfortunately been arrested again to serve a sentence that was canceled in 2014.
