Women in Christ (logo) Notes from Nancy

“Just then his disciples returned and were surprised to find him talking with a woman (John 4:27a).” Jesus was born into a worldly culture just like the rest of us are. In his culture it was unusual for a man to speak to a woman in public who was a stranger. It even surprised the woman at the well as she was not only a woman, but also a Samaritan. “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 John 4:9).”

Jesus is our example for breaking cultural norms in how we treat each other when it is in conflict with God‘s way. In his example in John 4, he demonstrates to us Christ is All and is in all.

We are to follow his example of love for all people, strangers as well as people we have relationships with on a day to day basis, which is not an easy thing to do. So how can we do this? Come join us as we learn how we should be Renewed in Knowledge.
