International World Water Day is held annually on March 22 as a means of focusing attention on the importance of fresh water and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.

The United Nations estimates that more than 1 billion people worldwide currently lack access to safe drinking water and that by 2025 two-thirds of the world’s population will not have access to drinking water.

Our ministry’s commitments to promoting the common good, acting on behalf of justice and stewarding resources compels us to call attention to this important issue. So that you can reflect on it in your organization, CHA has developed a Reflection for World Water Day. Please share it widely within your organization and the community by:
• Making a part of any organizational strategy to eliminate bottled water
• Placing copies in chapels
• Including as a daily reflection over the PA system
• Using as an opening reflection in meetings
• Posting on the intranet and social media sites
• Sending via email, newsletters
• Posting in break rooms and the cafeteria

Additional resources you might access include:

Thank you for all that you do to continue our mission of compassion and healing here and around the world.
