Each Sunday during this year’s observation of Lent at our church, encounters of Jesus with a specific person- and the after-effects, are being highlighted through scripture, song, message and a visual element.
I would like to reflect on, and internalize these meetings of Jesus with very real people just like you and me. Looking for answers, perhaps- but maybe more important are the questions that arise. And the personal way Jesus interacts with each person: seeming to deeply know them and value them; encouraging them to think beyond the surface- and breaking all cultural, social and gender-based barriers while doing so.
First Encounter: Nicodemus
Second Encounter: Woman at a well
Third Encounter: A blind man
Fourth Encounter: Mary, Martha, and Lazarus
