2) In an inter-faith discussion, Muslims have explained the role of ritual washing before their prayers. How would you, as Christians, tell them about the religious significance of water in your own worship?
3) A water utility, the Environment Agency and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds are together organising a conference on ‘Working with Water’ and have invited you as a local faith group to take part. What distinctive Christian contribution could you make on this theme?
