A Brief History of the Living Water Magazine

“Living Water” was a Christian magazine that first appeared in 1993, and until recently was edited and published bi-monthly by the Stone Publishing Trust.  In June 2019, its editor Mark Lemon died following a period of illness, and is himself now with the Lord and Saviour in whom he had trusted throughout his life.  The trustees of the Stone Publishing Trust wish to record their deep sorrow at the loss of a colleague who was so devoted to the work of the Lord, and their appreciation of Mark’s commitment to the work of the Trust.

Mark had been the sole editor of the magazine from the outset, and its contents have reflected his concern for the Gospel and for ministry which the Lord has given over many years.  After prayerful consideration as to the continuation of the magazine, the remaining trustees have concluded that “Living Water” represented Mark’s distinctive service to the Lord and His people, and would cease publication at the end of 2019.  The final three issues were prepared from material that Mark had previously identified for publication.
