Before Phife Dawg from A Tribe Call Quest, passed away we get to hear his song writing one more time on their first album in 18 years. In his opening lyrics to Whateva Will Be, he speaks lyrics that remind me of today's Gospel reading, (John 9: 1-41) where Christ brings sight to the man born blind. The Blind Man not only gains the ability to see, he also gains the ability to be seen as he now courageously speaks his heart about his situation rather than being a quiet beggar. Similary, Phife refuses to be some stereotype that serves to hold people back in a state of struggle... Forward Movement!
In today's gospel reading, Jesus meets the woman at the well and asks for a drink. He never gets that drink... instead a conversation ensues. (John 4: 5-42) The conversation ends up being food to Jesus... it makes you wonder, 'what is it exactly about the conversation that fed Jesus to the point of alleviating his hunger? What does God eat anyway?
