GIFT OF WATER
Jesus asks the Samaritan Woman for a Cup of Water
John 4:1-42

“Access to safe water is a fundamental human need
and therefore a basic human right.”
– Kofi Annan,
United Nations Secretary General, January, 1997 to December, 2006This reading stands out to me because, Jesus is accepting a cup of water from the Samaritan woman at a time when the Jews would have no dealings with the Samaritans. The act of the acceptance of others, and the symbolism of water are both very powerful. Water is necessary for life. It quenches our thirst and refreshes us. It is the first thing we offer to invited guests. It cleans that which is dirty. And, it is used to grow plants and make the earth fruitful. I think of our human family, who do not have water due to climate change, drought, and the infrastructure needed to store water. We need to overcome and look past our prejudices in order to quench our thirst for healing, to communicate with and understand others.
