‘Justice should flow down like waters and righteousness like an ever flowing stream’ Amos 5.24
The theme for Creation Time 2013 is ’water justice’, corresponding with the United Nations International Year of Water Cooperation
Today many people live in an environment where water has stopped rolling and the ever flowing streams have dried up and become ‘never flowing’.
In this context of water injustice, our service for Creation Time 2013 (available for download below) invites us to worship the God of justice with the hope that water justice will flow like a river and eco-righteousness will permeate our hearts and minds like an overflowing stream. The service was prepared by the Student Christian Movement India (SCMI) and first published by the Ecumenical Water Network (EWN) .
We also provide Bible notes that use Amos 5.24 and John 4.15 (the woman at the well) as a starting point, as well as pointing to other biblical resources.
The Virtual water cube activity demonstrates how much water it takes to produce many of the foods we eat regularly. People could be invited to explore it during a Creation Time service, or it could be used for a separate occasion.
