In "Gather the Spirit," a Tapestry of Faith program
Lead the group to identify and implement ways the congregation can conserve water.
Share these facts and tips from the EPA website:
Distribute paper and pencils/pens, and clipboards if you have them. Take the group around and outside the building. Inspect all the pipes, faucets and hoses, noting any leaks or drips.
Return to the meeting space. On newsprint or paper, list recommendations to submit to the congregational leadership. Introduce the recommendations with a brief description of the work the group has done in Gather the Spirit to understand stewardship of water and why it is important. Perhaps the group or some representatives can present the recommendations to congregational leadership. The group can advocate for fixing any problems they have found. If the congregation cannot afford to immediately replace leaky faucets or switch to energy efficient toilets, see if the group could work on a fundraiser.
