Getting Ready for Sunday November 15th at The Crossing

Prepare

Keith Simon continues this week our sermon series in the Gospel of John with a sermon entitled, “Jesus and Race,” from John 4. Note in particular these verses:

4 Now he had to go through Samaria. 5 So he came to a town in Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of ground Jacob had given to his son Joseph. 6 Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about noon.

7 When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” 8 (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.)

9 The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.)

The controversies on campus of the last few weeks (and longer) have captured our attention. For some they have been inspiring; for some they have been infuriating; for many they have been confusing. How should we process and respond to these events? How should we interact with each other? Does God have anything to say about our response? Join us Sunday for biblical reflections on what God has to say about our identity and our relations as Christians of any color in Columbia today.
