Today’s Americans prefer endless and fruitless political combat to the restoring waters of reconciliation. The choice is in favor of self-destructive behavior rather than life.
A woman of Samaria came to the village well to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give Me a drink.”
Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, “How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?” For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.
In today’s America, Republicans and Democrats disdain to drink from the same well. How far have we devolved in 2,000 years?
May we choose in future to drink the living water of tolerance.
