March 19, 2017.  This sermon focused on the human impulse inside us to tell single stories about other people, especially people who are different than us. But every human being is more  complex, more beautiful, more capable of change and transformation than a single story would ever tell. Jesus’ encounter with the Samaritan woman at the well shows us a God whose love crosses boundaries, breaks down walls, and blows open the stories people tell about us (and we tell about ourselves) in order to show us who we are in God’s eyes. That’s the love that’s reached us, and it’s the love that calls us to encounter people we’d otherwise choose to ignore or bypass.
