Site Semanas por el Agua 2024: La Tierra que gime necesita la resurrección del “agua de la vida”

La última reflexión de la serie, Siete Semanas para el Agua 2024, de la Red Ecuménica del Agua del Consejo Mundial de Iglesias (CMI), está escrita conjuntamente por la Revda. Audra Hudson Stone y Jacob Stone. Sostienen que las catástrofes naturales ya no son naturales, sino provocadas por el ser humano. Estas catástrofes son el gemido de la Tierra, que llama nuestra atención para que enmendemos nuestros actos. Los Stones tienen la esperanza de que, al igual que Jesús se liberó de las cadenas de la muerte, la Madre Tierra también se liberará de su desesperación, sufrimiento y muerte a través del “agua de la vida”: Jesucristo. Para ello, ¡tenemos que favorecer y practicar la “resurrección” de la Tierra!

Seven Weeks for Water 2024, final refection: "Groaning earth needs resurrection through 'water of life'"

The last reflection of the Seven Weeks for Water 2024 series of the WCC Ecumenical Water Network is jointly written by Rev. Audra Hudson Stone and Jacob Stone. They argue that natural disasters are not natural anymore; rather, they are human-induced. These disasters are the groaning of the earth, which is drawing our attention to mend our ways. The Stones are hopeful that, as Jesus rose from the shackles of death, the mother earth, too, will rise from its despair, suffering, and death through the water of life”—Jesus Christ. To that end, we need to facilitate and practice resurrection” of the earth!
