"`Living Waters : Daily Reflections for Lent' is one element of `Water in Focus', an ambitious initiative of The United Church of Canada, whose aim is to explore the spiritual significance of water as a metaphor for God's presence in the life of creation and to couple this with an engagement in the issues that threaten the availablity and quality of water for all God's creatures. We are immensely grateful to Ian Macdonald of South Burnaby United Church for the poetic and theologically challenging approach that he has brought to the writing of this book. To supplement the daily reflections, Ian has included a series of water-related stories at the end of each week. Also, Ian's colleague, Barbara Tunnicliffe, has prepared questions for further reflection for each of the daily meditations, plus `Charting the Course', a study guide that offers suggestions for using `Living Waters' in group contexts. From time to time, Ian refers in some of his reflections to songs from the Common Cup Company of which he is a member. `Rivers Run Deep', a CD of water-related Common Cup Company songs, is attached to the inside back cover". -- Editor's Note, p. 8.
