Topic: "Lessons At The Well: What the Samaritan Woman Teaches Us About Following Jesus." With this longest conversation Jesus has with anyone in the Gospels, we overhear and are invited into what discipleship looks like and calls for in the Gospel of John. In the encounter between Jesus and the Samaritan woman at the well, we learn that discipleship is not about disembodied truths but belonging in the Truth, the way, and the life who is Jesus, the Word made flesh.
