Sharing someone’s story

In a world of difficulty and division, we have found that there is incredible power in taking the time and courage to cross boundaries to come together and share one another’s stories. Jacob’s Well draws inspiration from the story of Jesus crossing racial boundaries and gender divides to take time to share someone’s story at a well which resulted in fresh life flowing in that place. These kinds of conversations can be challenging but also bring about lasting change.

Take a moment to read and reflect on the story in John 4 in the bible? Who do you need to connect with?
