Jesus' encounter with the Samarian woman at the well is one of the most beloved and rich stories of the Lenten season. It is also the longest conversation Jesus has in the Gospels. This Lent, which marks the 100th anniversary of the first sermon by a woman at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul, five female-identifying preachers have been invited to open up the story of the Samaritan woman's encounter with Jesus in John 4. Join at the cathedral or by livestream at 5:15 p.m. on the Tuesdays in Lent for a service of lamp-lighting with Taize chant, featuring the sermon. Refreshments and conversation with the preacher follow. All are welcome.
