Product Description

When Jesus met the woman at Jacob’s well, he was tired and, I imagine, feeling the weight and the stress of his ministry.  And so, leaving his companions behind, Jesus went in search of a place to rest and renew himself.  You may have found yourself in a similar situation: tired, stressed, feeling that your well has run dry…So, whether you are a mom, a caregiver, a nurse, a counselor…or simply someone who just needs some time away to re-center – a pic-me- up on the spiritual journey, this retreat may be just what you need.  In this passage from the gospel of John, Jesus asks the woman to give him a drink…and the woman is the one who ends up getting a very special drink herself.  She finds out that this stranger knows something she could never have dreamed of—that she holds within herself a Spring of Living Water, one that is always there for her to go to and drink whenever she feels thirsty again.  So, come and treat yourself to a SACRED TIME-OUT.  A time just for you, a time to meet Jesus by his well so HE can help you reconnect with your own living well, the Source of God’s Grace, the Spring of Living Water that God has placed within your soul.
