Hello! My name is Hallie Stelzle. I am an Environmental Policy and Decision Making major with a specialization in environmental and social justice. I wrote this chapter during my junior year in fall 2020. The idea for this paper originated from a simple reflection on the importance of water in our everyday lives – both in a physical and spiritual sense. With climate change exacerbating water issues worldwide, I decided to dig into our long standing relationships with water through the lenses of four major world religions to try to better understand what water means (and has meant) to people throughout time, in hopes of finding potential spiritual or religious motivations for water conservation.
