Sun. Feb. 3, 2013 (Jenna Veenbass)

There are various ways of communicating the messages of the Bible: words, art, music, reading, dramatization, etc. Jenna Veenbass used her gifts as a dramatist to bring life to the story of Jesus and the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well. Using a few simple props and a dramatic voice, Jenna described a marginalized lady widowed several times and childless. Jenna brought out many emotions within this story of a widow from a Samaritan village. This woman was surprised when, in the heat of the noonday sun with few people around, she sees a Jewish man sitting at the well where she comes to get water. Fully aware of the animosity between the Jews and Samaritans – Jews do not associate with Samaritans – she is astonished when he asks her for a drink of water. She complies and then he starts talking about “living water” and she wants to know where she can get it. Listening to him gives her energy (living water?) and she runs to her village and tells of the prophet who has come. [HN]
