2010: Holy Water

In 2010 the theme of the Seven Weeks was “Holy Water”. We explored what the meaning and use of water in our liturgical traditions can tell us about the meaning and use of water in our everyday life? And vice versa - how can the reality of water today, including the crisis of water, inform and inspire our liturgical use of water?

Introduction

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.
