Regarding “A living document speaks to living waters,” Feb. 5, Page 11:

I wish to take a moment to thank you for the extensive review you did with the bishops’ Pastoral Letter on the Columbia River. I recall when that was done, and it felt so encouraging at the time to have come from the bishops of the Northwest. I loved the review and feel reenergized in my efforts to work on our “common home.”
