I was tempted to re-use the sermon I preached here 3 years ago, because it still seemed to be so relevant to what is going on in the world. In that sermon, I talked about how Jesus crossed many boundaries and borders in his interaction with the Samaritan woman.
We live, still, in a world that is deeply divided along lines of race, gender, class, theology, politics and nationality. And these divisions have gotten more pronounced; intolerance of difference has increased; more people are emboldened to speak aloud things they never would have said in another time.
- John 4:1 - 42
