For years, religious leaders and communities around the world have turned to the Women’s Alliance for Theology, Ethics, and Ritual (WATER) for feminist liturgies for justice. Now—in celebration of the organization’s thirty-fifth anniversary—Stirring Waters gathers fifty-two of these beautiful liturgies, ready-made to help your community celebrate powerful women of faith, develop a richer and deeper spirituality, and take real action for justice.
Use the liturgies in this book as a resource to nourish souls and focus passions. Reflect on great women like the prophetess Miriam and Julian of Norwich; provoke and disturb on occasions like Earth Day and World Water Day; energize on International Women’s Day and Black History Month; and rejuvenate drooping spirits with liturgies of healing and gratitude. Never again will you scramble or struggle to provide community prayer that is worthwhile, nourishing, and even electrifying.
