The Samaritan Woman at the Well
Jesus and his disciples meanwhile took some time out. They went into the Judean countryside for a while, and from there they went on to a town called Sychar in Samaria. The disciples headed into town to buy some food, leaving Jesus alone for a while. Tired from the journey he sat down by Jacob’s well.  Before long a Samaritan woman came to draw some water. 
Would you give me some water to drink?
What? You’re a Jew aren’t you? And your asking me for a drink! 
The Jews and Samaritans were sworn enemies. 
Well, you have a bucket to draw water, and I’m empty-handed. 

But I can’t… It isn’t right!
