|"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:
- Why is Jesus in Samaria?
- How is Jesus' humanity revealed in this passage?
- How is his divinity revealed?
- What is the woman's initial response to Jesus?
- What does she do as a result of her encounter with him?
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.
