Only Water Day

This week, choose one day where you can eat whatever you like but where you only have water as your drink. That means no coffee, no tea, no milk, no beer, and no wine! 
 
This week's challenge may not seem that hard but once you get started, you may realize just how much you drink other drinks! Here’s a statistic to make you think: A cup of coffee may only be a 250ml drink, but 140 litres of water were needed to produce that single cup. Tea requires 30 litres of water per cup. 

If you're interested in learning more about water, why not check out some fun infographics and facts. The knowledge may even help you in a future pub quiz!

World Water Day

"World Water Day, held on 22 March every year since 1993, focuses on the importance of freshwater.

World Water Day celebrates water and raises awareness of the 2.2 billion people living without access to safe water. It is about taking action to tackle the global water crisis. A core focus of World Water Day is to support the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 6: water and sanitation for all by 2030."
- United Nations

Eco-Challenge

In the Christian tradition, the time of Lent is a time of self-examination, often through prayer, fasting, penance and giving to those in need. It can be a time to reflect on one's personal relationship with God and our global relationship with God's gift of creation. This Lent, you are invited to take part in 6-weeks of Eco-Challenges as we reflect on how we impact the environment. A different Eco-Challenge will be revealed each Wednesday on our Facebook page and Instagram (with reminders in the Friday newsletter). I hope you'll join us!

Feeling a bit ...?

Many of us are feeling a bit weary and fed-up at the moment and may just need some space to talk. If you're feeling a bit down or anxious or sad or on edge or a bit lost in the midst of everything going on around you - remember that the chaplain is here to provide support for you. Feel free to get in touch over the phone or email if you'd like to schedule a time to talk.

ILSC Book Club

March's book is A Thousand Splendid Suns by  is a breathtaking story set against the volatile events of Afghanistan's last thirty years - from the Soviet invasion to the reign of the Taliban to post-Taliban rebuilding - that puts the violence, fear, hope, and faith of this country in intimate, human terms. It is a tale of two generations of characters brought jarringly together by the tragic sweep of war, where personal lives - the struggle to survive, raise a family, find happiness - are inextricable from the history playing out around them.
Join us on 7 April to discuss your thoughts! Whether you've read a little or a lot, we all have something to share. Upcoming reads:
April: Blindness by José Saramago
