Eggs, ashes and water

Ruth Burgess and Chris Polhill wrote and edited Eggs and Ashes, a book of Lenten prayers, liturgies and meditations by Wild Goose publications.

I was pleased to discover that week two in the Lenten discipline they propose focuses on Water - week one was transport. You can read a pdf extract of the book here.

Here's an extract from a prayer by Yvonne Morland in the book entitled Living Water:

We are connected in creation
by water which gives us life
Let our marks be gentle
Let us respect the sacredness of water
which moves between us
as ablessing from the hand of God
