Blogging toward Sunday

"Jesus and the Samaritan Woman at the Well" by Guercino
In preparation for worship Sunday, March 23, 2014 read John 4:5-42 and reflect on the following:
  1. Why is Jesus in Samaria?
  2. How is Jesus' humanity revealed in this passage?
  3. How is his divinity revealed?
  4. What is the woman's initial response to Jesus?
  5. What does she do as a result of her encounter with him?
The following prayer, "Sinking wells" was written by Janet Morley. Take time to read it a couple of times and consider its meaning for your life.

Sinking wells
Come to the waters
all you who are thirsty;
children who need water
free from diseases,
women who need respite
from labor and searching,
plants that need moisture
rooted near the bedrock,
find here a living spring.
O God, may we thirst
for your waters of justice,
and learn to deny no one
the water of life.

May the Lord continue to bless you on your Lenten journey.
