Seven Weeks for Water 2009: Water and Justice

Make Lent a time to promote water justice and water as a human right.

The weekly meditations for the seven weeks of Lent are a way of trying to raise awareness of water and justice around World Water Day on 22 March. Each week during Lent a short biblical meditation will be posted here along with some campaigning links and ideas.

Make Seven Weeks for Water part of your Lenten reflections. Use the comments to continue the discussion, highlight activities you are involved in and to link to liturgical resources about water. What are people doing in your area to work for water justice both at home and in other parts of the world?

Steve de Gruchy (University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa), Fulata Mbano-Moyo (World Council of Churches, Switzerland), David Pickering (Operation Noah, United Kingdom), Carlos Möller (National Council of Christian Churches, Brazil), Jordan Blevins (NCC Eco-Justice Program, USA), Anderson Jeremiah (Christ Church Morningside, Scotland) and Jane Stranz (World Council of Churches, Switzerland) have all promised contributions, so come back each week to leave a comment and keep up to date with the conversation.
