Season After Pentecost . .
October 22, 2017
In he first reading, Exodus 17:1-7, the Israelite's face the trial of wondering if God is with them or not. In giving manna, bread from heaven, earlier, and now water (from an earthly rock), God shows his presence and mastery over creation.
In the second reading, Titus 3:4-7, Paul writes to Timothy to explain how the outward act of baptism is a sign of renewal by the Holy Spirit. It purifies the soul even as water cleanses the body and renews us in the image of God.
The Gospel reading, John 4:5-42, Jesus enters Samaria and rests from the heat as his disciples go for food. A long conversation ensues about "living water" and in the end through the woman's witness many come to believe that Jesus is "truly the Savior of the world."
May God bless our worship.
