Sunday 23rd March – Lent 3A

JOHN 4:5-42
Not living on the edge?
You’re taking up too much space,
the T-shirt declared.
That is to ignore
all those driven to the edge
by our prejudice.

Religious belief
gender, sexuality,
political view:
aspects of our lives
by which we judge and shun
those who are ‘other’.

It was the Teacher
who chose the edge and beyond
to teach, include, share:
life in its fullness;
living water, like a spring,
quenching inner thirst.
