The news this last week has been telling us that we are drought free. Regardless of the current conditions, I am a product of the 1970s California drought that brought us the phrase, “If it’s yellow, let it mellow.” Water conservation is part of my ethos.
Regardless of the news and the abundance of rain today, our lives can feel metaphorically arid – in the dry wilderness. We are thirsty for the knowledge of God’s presence. Maybe we feel abandoned by God.
Or maybe we forgot the living waters that are always available to us if we but drink.
This week, we will look at John’s story of “Jesus and the Woman at the Well.” I look forward to seeing you at 1130 Balclutha or on Zoom as we ponder “seeking: Will you give me a drink?” Are you willing to ask?
Come with your thirst,
Rev. Michael Cronin
