Continuing our series using the #LiveLent tag, this week is all about Water, and we’re reading chapters 2 & 5 of “Saying Yes to Life”, as we explore this precious natural resource which God has given us.
Read Psalm 65.9-13: You visit the earth and water it, you greatly enrich it; the river of God is full of water.
Monday – give thanks for water. Whenever you use water today, say thank you to God for this amazing gift we often take for granted.
Tuesday – find out about “virtual water” – how much water does it take to make a pair of jeans? Or a hamburger? Research online, and share what you find.
Wednesday – Care for local waterways. Where are the canals, rivers and beaches in your area? Perhaps you could be involved in a local community clean-up.
Thursday – Check your cupboards! Go through your bathroom and kitchen cupboards and see if at least one or two products could be swapped for ones with fewer harmful chemicals.
Friday – Don’t give up hope. Pray for people already experiencing damaging climate change, and ask God to bring hope and courage to those trying to help them.
Weekend – Support a water charity. Find out about charities providing clean water and toilets in poor communities. Can you help, maybe through raising money in the church or the school.
