Refresh

In this technical era, many of us know theimportanceoftheRefresh icon.We push the Refresh and suddenly the program or page that stopped working or just stopped, appears anew. Jesus’ conversation with this Samaritan woman broke many of the Jewish Laws. He talked in public with a woman. She was a Samaritan. Jews and Samaritan did not get along with each other- different laws, different worship, and different traditions. She was a sinner, an outcast from her people.
