Water and Well Being: Fracking Resources for Lent

The Faithful Public Witness Cluster of Comox-Nanaimo Presbytery, in collaboration with KAIROS and with the co-operation of the Contemplative Justice Network of BC Conference, offers the following resources for Water Sunday – March 19, 2017 (3rd Sunday in Lent).  Reflecting on the gift of water and on our well-being brings to the foreground the Fracking and LNG economies that are both water-intensive.  The attached materials can be used to invite small group discussion and congregational engagement. As a community of Christ, we are called to care for Creation and all creatures in the One-earth Community and stand with those most affected by resource-extraction projects.

Resources available below:

  • Fracking Poster
  • LNG Pamphlet and Poster
  • Bulletin Insert (Half-page stand alone)
  • Announcement for cutting and pasting
  • Liturgy for Lent 3, March 19, the Sunday closest to World Water Day.

The pamphlets are triple-fold. Please print on both sides, selecting the “flip on short edge” option in the PRINT menu.

The Liturgy includes suggested hymns, a suggested Children’s time, and three options for a Reflection.

Congregations are encouraged to post and use these resources.
