Wise words from Brother Roger of Taize: "I say to myself, go on seeking, be glad for being sensitive, be glad you're able to go beyond the resistance inside you. It is our resistance to what we experience that makes creativity possible. So don't get rid of resistance like that by going around it or trying to eliminate it. Our own limitations put up strong resistance, but it's because of that that we are creators."

Today in church we learned that, at any one time, around 130 First Nations across Canada have to cope with water that is unsafe to drink. For many, these problems have gone on for years, even decades. Amnesty International has a petition calling for the Canadian government to ensure that everyone has access to clean water.

From Karen's eSpirit message this week: Water is fluid, there is nothing fixed or rigid about it. Many of us are drawn to water, as it can be a place of spiritual renewal. Rituals and festivals often include water. There is sense that as water flows, people are freed to reflect, grow and be. Joy Mead’s poem, “Woman at the Well,” also gives a sense of renewal and hope:

Thirsty people, wanting
containers for their needs
and their longings ;
women with the means
to draw fresh water;
colour, activity
fertile wetness,
bodies of hope –
gather around a possibility
of blossoming deserts
and flourishing people;
growing food
and healthy children.

A well is a telling place
where perceptions are changed
and tomorrow welcomed;
where hidden stories
bubble up joyfully
to heal and enliven
every part
of our shared being.

Wise words from Matthew Fox: "To connect with the great river we all need a path, but when you get down there there's only one river."
