  • Ex 17: 1-17, Jn 4: 5-42. Just like Jesus had a gushing stream of hope for the woman at the well that day, Jesus is standing ready with an outpouring of salvation for all of the world’s oppressed. Scripture tells us that Jesus saves men and women and children who are in any way hurting, or feeling devalued or outside the bounds of justice, bringing healing to those who ask and those who don’t even know what to do next.

  • That Wild Thing that Happened

  • 2 Peter 1: 16-21 and Mt 17: 1-9. We live in a culture that tends to police extraordinary experiences – we have moments of feeling truly awestruck, moments of amazement, and yet our culture tells us that we shouldn’t share those moments unless we can academically and logically explain what happened. But, our text today speaks to the opposite and gives us permission not only to have those extraordinary moments but to share them. It acknowledges that a wild thing happened and amazement is not the enemy of knowledge - Amazement should accompany it – because this is how hope shines through. Therefore, might it be that we, aware of Christ’s ability to break through to amazement, seek to serve in love in hope of being amazed by God’s presence in the world over and over again?
