Lent 2009, Idea 1

This is cutting things a tad close – writing on the eve of Ash Wednesday about ideas for observing Lent.

The Ecumenical Water Network invites us to make Lent a time to promote water justice and water as a human right.

100_0168 During the Seven Weeks for Water initiative, theologians and church activists from Africa, Europe, North and South America will share short biblical meditations for each week along with some campaigning ideas and resources.

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.

When the poor and needy seek water,
I will open rivers on the bare heights,
and fountains in the midst of the valleys;
I will make the wilderness a pool of water,
and the dry land springs of water.
Isaiah 41:17-18
