Water. Give me water. If you only knew. This is the well Jacob dug, and it might as well be the well where all the ancestors met God’s promises and stared them in the face. Maybe this is the well from which the flood once sprang, maybe an unknown well from the very beginning, buried beneath the fathomless depths of the ocean. Give me water and I’ll give you water, and won’t that be a miracle worth singing, Amen over, and we’ll pass the same cup back and forth all day long.
inspired by John 4:1-42
