At the Water's Edge

A riparian zone or riparian area is the interface between land and a river or stream – the edge where water and land meet. These areas have a role in reducing pollutants, enhancing water quality via biofiltration. The riparian zones also provide wildlife habitat, increased biodiversity, and wildlife corridors, enabling aquatic and riparian organisms to move along river systems avoiding isolated communities. -- From Wikipedia, edited

This week, I am thinking about water, looking forward to Shell Sunday. Water, and where creatures go to find it. The edge of water, and what it means for life on earth. Because every year, when we reconsider baptism, we are invited to come to the water – to the edge where earth and water meet, where there is diversity, and a place to avoid isolation. We are invited to consider that this is where God meets us – on the edge, where there is diversity, where we avoid isolation. God invites us to come to the water, to touch the water, and to see who else has come to do the same.
