“But whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” – John 4:14
How ‘water-savvy’ is your church? Consider changing the taps in your building to those which switch on and off automatically. Or simply mend any dripping taps at your church! You can put a filled 2 litre bottle in your cistern and save 2 litres every time you flush!
Water Crisis – what are the causes?
Many factors are responsible. To mention but a few: increased and unsustainable agricultural and industrial use of water, deforestation and land-degradation that seriously change the water cycle, over-consumption and waste, pollution and population growth. Climate change and global warming are reducing rainfall.
The crisis is also aggravated by the prevailing economic system. Public and community control of water supply has drastically diminished over recent decades and years. Increasingly water is treated as a commercial good subject to market conditions. Many cases can be cited where privatisation of water resources and water supply systems has deprived the poor from access to water.
We must all learn to save water but also to work for water justice
