The Story of The Well

The Well Community
Albuquerque, New Mexico

A farmer raises sheep. He has two ways to keep them in his pastures. The first option is to build a fence. This will keep his sheep inside, near home, and it will keep other animals out. His sheep are protected from all outside influences.

The second option is to dig a well. Yes, all of the animals in the region will water there, but the sheep will stay close.

People are rather like sheep--and our churches are rather like fenced pastures. But the Man we claim to follow, Jesus, claimed to be a spring of "living water". I believe Jesus is a well. He doesn't place fences around his believers, nor does he keep others at arm's length. Instead, he welcomes everyone to drink freely.
