Lent: How Do We Hear God Today?


  1. Reading: John 4:4-14
  2. Teaching: explain the background to the story.
  3. The Samaritan woman met Jesus at a well and He promised that if she trusted Him then she would never want again. We can't meet Him at a well today, but during Lent in particular we should still try to find Him. Where can we look? The children go on a Treasure Hunt in church, for lots of Bibles that you have previously hidden.
  4. Teaching: we can seek God in the Bible. This is a good opportunity to explain about the lectern, if your church has one; about how the Bible is not just written in English but translated into many different languages; and that not everyone in the world has access to the Bible. Especially during Lent we should make time to hear what God has to say to us, by regularly reading His word.
