Water Here, Water There…
Water is one of the main themes of this edition of Not So Far Afield. As we all know, water has no boundaries. Water that was once part of a clear lake in Minnesota may one day be rain over the Philippines. Pat Denevan’s reminder to us of the water cycle shows how this is something we should not take for granted. So, it is appropriate that we have stories from the mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico, and the rural areas of New York State. The risk to our water resources are global, and our responses must be, too.
In some ways water is also the theme of our center piece. While not about water, per se, it is about people who live and work near water with the Coastal AIDS Resource Effort (C.A.R.E.). While the Maryknoll magazine will be covering Maryknoll’s history rooted in North Carolina, we are proud to have a Maryknoll Affiliate Chapter in Wilmington that lives out Fr. Price’s vision today.
We hope this new approach to the Not So Far Afield—having our theme parallel those of the Maryknoll magazine—proves interesting and educating. Our aim is that it will deepen any kind of reflection process you may have in your Chapter that might be based on the Maryknoll magazine and that you can turn to Not So Far Afield for even more information.
We would appreciate any feedback you can give us, including submitting comments on our website about this and other issues. Not So Far Afield is meant to connect us with one another and with our wider Maryknoll family. We hope that this new practice will do that.
