I LEARNED ABOUT THIRST while visiting El Esperanza. More than two-thirds of Nicaragua’s rural communities lack access to clean drinking water. Globally, contaminated water is the second greatest cause of infant mortality. An estimated 1.8 million children die each year as a result of illnesses linked to consumption of polluted water. …
What are we thirsting for today?
PRAYER: O God, we go about our days doing the work and activities that we have planned. With good intentions we make an idol out of our schedules and to-do lists. Would you interrupt our lives like you did the woman at the well? Please come to us where we are today, even if that means that our lives are disrupted. Amen.
