Beside Living Waters

We live in an age of pollution and crisis. Our earth’s air and our water are becoming so contaminated that we fear an ecological crisis. The fresh-water image, therefore, in the prophecy of Ezekiel has all the more appeal today; its miraculous origin all the more necessary. Only by the mercy of God, it seems, can the destruction of our planet be reversed. Ezekiel offers us reasons to hope and pray.
