Seven Weeks for Water 2014
The Ecumenical Water Network invites you to use this season of Lent to reflect on how we can be better stewards of God’s Creation and live out God’s love in how we relate to others. Since 2008, the EWN has been providing weekly reflections and other resources on water for the seven weeks of Lent. This year our Lent reflections focus on the “Pilgrimage towards Water Justice”.
The recent 10th Assembly of the World Council of Churches encouraged the churches to embark on a pilgrimage of justice and peace. In a message it said “We intend to move together. Challenged by our experiences in Busan, we challenge all people of good will to engage their God-given gifts in transforming actions. This Assembly calls you to join us in pilgrimage. May the churches be communities of healing and compassion, and may we seed the Good News so that justice will grow and God’s deep peace rest on the world.”
While water is intrinsically connected with the overall wellbeing of the people, billions of people around the world are deprived of access to water and sanitation. The reflections this year will focus on this injustice against more than one third of the world's population.
Reflections will be published here week by week:
