The 3rd Sunday in Lent

This Sunday, the Rev. Gabrielle Suedfeld preaches and leads worship as we continue our "Seeking" journey for the season of Lent. In the reading we'll hear from the gospel of John, we'll watch as, in the heat of midday, Jesus seeks out a Samaritan woman drawing water from a well. His command to her is also a question and an invitation into a new way of life: “Will you give me a drink?” This question creates a dialogue between them in which Jesus sees the woman fully and she leaves transformed. In the wilderness, the Israelites essentially ask: “Will you give us a drink, God? Will you take care of us, even now?” This week, we might imagine ourselves at the well or in the wilderness. Are we willing to care for our neighbours, seeking to not just quench thirst, but to find living waters that sustain us all?
