We live on a planet that is covered by water - a sacred and abundant gift from God the Creator. The imagery and sacred meaning of water for Christians is clear throughout the Bible. Unfortunately, our use and misuse of this sacred gift has led to a water crisis in many parts of the world with devastating consequences for both people and the planet.
As we struggle to live in right relation with our neighbor and the planet, the church has a unique and important role in raising awareness of the challenge, advocating for just and sustainable policies, and proclaiming a new vision of world community where all who are thirsty are given drink and all who hunger are fed.

- Eat lower on the food chain! Grain-fed animals require much more water per pound than vegetarian alternatives
- Write your member of Congress and ask them to co-sponsor the Clean Water Restoration Act.
