Saturday March 22

Today is world water day. A day to remember that not everyone on this planet has access to safe, potable drinking water. Water, is part of of the land and we haven't treated it very well either. Each year the number of impaired waters in Minnesota grows, as does the "dead zone" in the Gulf of Mexico - the result of excess nutrients applied to corn fields in the midwest.

Water is what cleanses us. We're baptized in water, making us part of the Christian community. Peter Mayer sings about Stirrin' up the Water. Let's just hope it's clean!

Easter Peace,
