Encountering Jesus, Lent 3: Woman at the Well
Lent 3 2023 (March 12)
It is beyond debate that we live in a world with many divisions, some ancient and others new.
When Jesus encountered the woman at the well, he was encountering a millennia old divide. Yet he finds a way to make a common sacred ground between the two people, building a bridge over the huge cultural chasm that existed between him and the woman.
How does Jesus do this? How might we be able to follow Jesus in doing this too?
The answer, as it turns out, is neither breaking relationships nor watering down the truth, but something else.
