In order to enhance this vital season of prayer, study and repentance, members of the Anglican Communion Environmental Network have created a Study Guide with meditations for the Five Sundays during Lent and Palm Sunday. The guide is for individuals and groups as a PDF or as an app for smartphones and tablets.
Produced in association with Trinity Church Wall Street.
While water has a strong spiritual significance in the Christian tradition as a gift of God, this scarce resource is threatened and denied to millions around the world. About half the world’s population without access to safe drinking water and about one third of the world’s population without access to adequate sanitation facilities, come from sub-saharan Africa.
In 2017 the annual ‘Seven Weeks for Water’ initiative of the World Council of Churches’ Ecumenical Water Network (EWN) will follow a pilgrimage of water justice in Africa. Reflections, liturgies and other resources will be uploaded to the EWN website every week, starting 1 March. The focus will be on issues such as inequality, stigma and discrimination related to water, and the feminisation of water poverty in the context of Africa.
