Sunday School Parent Connection: Mar 23 - The Woman at the Well
Using our very own "well", we acted out the biblical story of the Woman at the Well before the small children broke out into their classroom for crafts. With the older children, we discussed a modern-day story of a teen-aged girl who committed adultery by having a child before she was married -- and how she was shunned by others for her sins, just as the Samaritan woman was in biblical times. We discussed Matthew 7 which tells us the importance of not judging others for their sins, as we all have them. The key, however, is being truly sorry (repentant) for our sins by understanding His Word and asking God for forgiveness in Jesus' name. We learn this through the Word and Sacraments administered by the church. When we know better, we do better -- and Jesus is waiting for us every Sunday with open arms to share the Good News. The church is a wonderful community to be a part of.
