Sermon: “But My Neighbor is a …..”
Theme: Faithfulness to Christ calls us to see Christ in our neighbor’s heart rather than judge his or her behaviors.
Purpose: The congregation will seek to let go of judgments of others.

John 4:5-42 Jesus and the woman of Samaria at the well.
How does God call us to relate to those who have suffered humiliation and discrimination in their community? How do we find ways to show Christ’s love to people who have been condemned or suffered shame? In what ways does God call us to be people of grace and acceptance? What difference will it make to the world when we practice this Christ-like love and compassion? How do we become people who stand out in the world for our ability to bring healing and hope?
