We all hunger and thirst for something spiritual. We want to know, see, and experience, the sacred, holy or spiritual. As followers of Jesus, we have many ways to directly, personally, and powerfully experience the presence, the grace, and the love of God. One of the most powerful portals to God is found in scripture.
In this Sunday’s Gospel reading we hear a Samaritan woman encounters Jesus at the well and recognizes him for who he is. She sees the light of God in him. We can share that experience with her when we approach the scriptures faithfully with a sense of wonder.
