World Water Day Goes Virtual
We can't meet at the LA River this year, but we can join together from our homes, study, and take action to protect water and the environment that has been entrusted to us to steward. We are an Easter People, but we are also a Water People, both in our baptism and in our daily existence, and the current crisis can only underline this.
Follow the Water is Sacred and Lutherans Restoring Creation Facebook Pages, take a walk outside and pay close attention to how water - or the lack of it - impacts all the world, take a virtual walk by the LA River, and learn how to build an online community to protect this sacred gift.
