“Jesus, tired from his journey, sat down there at the well.” (John 4:6)

Jesus’s meeting at the well with the Samaritan woman provides us with “the longest conversation recorded in the Gospel” and a personal call-to-action “to be on Jesus’s team of evangelization.”

We can’t say we’re exempt—the Lord is calling us.

“God needs us to bring Jesus Christ and the Church to others, and we need to be on top of our game to be able to do this… To prove that Jesus Christ is real… To be the Gospel in a vessel of clay so that others can experience Christ.”

During this seven-part spiritual retreat, you are invited to bring this encounter from the Gospel to life in your personal prayer and life right now. Listen and reflect slowly on the words exchanged between Jesus and the Samaritan woman, and learn how God also speaks to you and offers you “this living water.”
