On the third Sunday in Lent, we looked at Compassionate Jesus – one of the many faces of Jesus. Rev. Cochran looked at compassion through the eyes of the story of the Samaritan Woman at the Well. As we see in this story, life has a way of becoming painful and messy, sometimes through no fault of our own. Life can simply take our energy away. These are the times when we are called to lay aside our own needs and blanket others with compassion. God has a way of knocking on our door and offering us a chance to re-evaluate our lives and our situation so we can learn how to better help others.
Based on Psalm 146:1-10 and John 4:5-42.
