a bucket for just one day

Today our family is getting all our water by bucket from an outside tap. So are others in the church. It has added a whole new dimension to toileting and washing and drinking. It certainly makes life slower.

While it feels hypocritical doing it for only one day, I have a hunch it will be something our family won’t forget for a while. And it has certainly made me more grateful for water. It’s part of water for life, our annual church and denominational missions focus (for more information go here).

And we’re meeting 4-5:15 pm at the church to Stir the waters - Christians should boycott bottled water, to reflect on how we in the West consume water.
