Woman at the Well Bible Study
how encounters with Jesus change us
This course is a Bible study based on Jesus's encounter with the woman at the well. It includes Bible study discussion prompts, prompts relevant to the study but focused on personal experiences, and leader's notes with example responses.
I'm here to help you experience a new way of living, thinking, and doing as a Christian.
I've come to understand that experiencing the world and interacting with the people can be transformative. Doing things and discussing our experiences, honestly and kindly, can lead to deeper understanding of who we are, who our neighbor is, and who God is - and how he's calling us to act.
So much, that is, too much, of our lives are transactional, even in church. Tasks are assigned and celebrated upon completion while relationships, genuine friendships, are dismissed as unimportant and irrelevant to our cause -- except, sometimes, within our already established circle of companions.
As far as my credentials, I have participated in and facilitated Bible studies, small groups, and church teams. I've led the strategic planning process at my church and developed a platform for its small group ministry. In the community, I host the occasional bike ride and keep involved in the local cycling community. I believe in grace, not works, and being reconciled with God through Jesus.
