Spiritual Preparation, Workshop 5: Chorus of Life Resounding as One
In "Gather the Spirit," a Tapestry of Faith program
Reflect on the question "Who owns water?" When have you ever thought about this before? What do you know about how Earth's water resources are distributed, who has access to clean water and who does not?
Think about your water. Do you own a well? Does your water come from a town or city water system? Who do you pay for it? To what extent do you feel you own the water you use? How does your feeling of ownership affect your use of water?
Take a few moments to sit with the idea that "your" water does not really belong to you. Feel your gratitude for access to clean drinking water. Take these thoughts and feelings into the workshop with you today.
This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
