Water Conservation as Stewardship

A Drop in the Bucket: Water Conservation and Christianity

April 6 at 7:00 p.m. in Michaux House Room 304

Water is a powerful Christian symbol: the waters of baptism, Jesus gives Living Water, the Spirit of God hovered over the waters of creation, the Hebrew people passed out of Egypt and into the wilderness through the Red Sea. Join us as we ask how we as Christians can care for our local water sources.
