For the 3rd Sunday of Lent, Jonas Cornelsen (CMU alumnus), spoke on how water is inseparable from dignity and salvation. Salvation can be defined as the full restoration of personal freedom to serve God alone. Human rights overlap with salvation in requiring a minimal level of sustenance for dignity, as the Israelites reminded Moses in the parched wilderness (Exodus 17). Jesus invited the Samaritan Woman at the Well (John 4) to recognize water as a symbol of Christ’s┬álife-giving alternative to oppressive social systems. Let us not despair in our search to be refreshed! [KH]
