March 19th – Lent 3A

WOMAN AT THE WELL
(John 4:5-42)
Woman at the well,
confused that Jesus would ask
she give him a drink.

Woman at the well,
startled that Jesus would know
her past and present.

Woman at the well,
wide-eyed that Jesus would speak
her into new life.

Woman at the well,
amazed that Jesus would offer
life – in its fullness.

Woman at the well,
enlivened, brings her townsfolk
to hear Jesus’ word.

Imagine if we,
having heard for ourselves
brought our townsfolk too.
