Cover: CBF 2013 Living Waters Summit Report

Throughout history, water has transformed cultures and landscapes. And across faiths, water plays a role in almost every sacred text. On November 19, 2013, faith and conservation leaders from across the Commonwealth came together to consider and strategically discuss water quality through the lens of faith, and together, our discoveries will act as not only a catalyst for greater mutual understanding, but also the forging of salient partnerships, as we collectively work together toward a saved Bay.

During Living Waters: An Interfaith Summit we:

  • reconnected with the wonder of water;
  • explored how sacred texts from different faiths call us to be stewards of our waters;
  • examined how environmental health and interfaith communities can work together toward a common goal of restoring local rivers, streams, and ultimately our Chesapeake Bay;
  • discovered resources to inspire our congregations and communities to move forward to protect and restore our waterways; and
  • built connections across faiths to sustain advocacy for living waters.
