Water Woes: The Urgency of Individual and Collective Action

Join us this Sunday as we explore the urgent need for action to address the current water crisis. Drawing from the insights of Isabel Araiza, we’ll discuss the vital role of both individual and collective action in mitigating this crisis and explore simple yet impactful steps that we can take in our daily lives to reduce our water usage. We’ll also reflect on the importance of supporting policies that protect our water sources and promote sustainable water practices, as well as the spiritual imperative to care for our planet and future generations. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn and engage with this pressing issue!
