Wells have been an important part of our life. In Genesis, we hear of Jacob’s well where Jacob, his family, and flocks all received life giving water. God provided a well for Hagar and Ishmael to drink from when they were cast out into the wilderness of Beersheba. It is at a well where Jesus reveals himself to a Samaritan woman and provides for her new life. Our faith formation and spiritual journey often need to find the respite and nurture that our ancestors found at wells.
From The Well is a blog of reflections on the thoughts and faith of our early church fathers and mothers. These individuals have provided spiritual nurture and food for over 1000 years and I believe still have something that speaks to our very core as Christians. These reflections are going to be what you make them out to be; for some they will comfort, for others they will motivate, and for others they will challenge. I hope these reflections help you deepen your spirituality and faith.
