Water

This is World Water Week.

I heard a report about it on a late night Radio Netherlands and realized it's something that is much bigger and growing bigger every year than I ever imagined. If you're interested by all means plug it into your favourite search engine. It's vast!

(For example, here's a link about UNICEF's concerns for the needs of the world's children for a safe supply of good water (http://www.unicef.org/wash/index_50832.html )

Then I thought of a couple of verses from Section 163. We still have a lot of work to do with this one, friends.

The restoring of persons to healthy or righteous relationships with God, others, themselves, and the earth is at the heart of the purpose of your journey as a people of faith.

The earth, lovingly created as an environment for life to flourish, shudders in distress because creation's natural and living systems are becoming exhausted from carrying the burden of human greed and conflict. Humankind must awaken from its illusion of independence and unrestrained consumption without lasting consequences.

Prepare new generations of disciples to bring fresh vision on the perplexing problems of poverty, disease, war, and environmental detrioration. Their contributions will be multiplied if their hearts are focuswed on God's will for creation.

How are you recognizing World Water Week? How about the rest of the year? And the rest of Creation?
