Woman at the Well

Woman at the Well

Third Sunday of Lent

A sculpture by Stephen Broadbent in the garden courtyard of the Chester Cathedral.

Around the base of the sculpture are etched the words from John’s gospel:

The water that I give will become a spring of water always welling up to eternal life.

The Samaritan woman’s encounter with Jesus transforms her life.

The sculpture portrays her being joined and springing out of Him signifying new life.

The part of the sculpture that a picture does not capture is the sound of the water. The sound of running water is part of the experience in that courtyard.

I have come that you may have life and have it in abundance!
