‘Unusual kindness’ is the unusual name for this year’s Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. The materials for the week have been prepared by the Christian churches in Malta and Gozo (Christians Together in Malta).
‘Unusual kindness’ is found in the book of Acts. The phrase refers to the warm welcome that the people of Malta gave to Paul and his companions when they were shipwrecked on the island. In return, Paul shared the gospel with them, and thus founded the church in Malta.
