We were at the Jordan river site of John's baptisms the other day, just outside Jericho. Actually, we were not able to get to the river due to the Israeli security barrier. As we gathered to reflect, we were interrupted by an irate believer who came to complain to us about this restricted access to such a holy site.
It was sad to see someone so devoted being so lacking in the sense of the Lord Jesus's renewal of worship, from places and mountains and rivers, to the new covenant worship in spirit and truth, as Jesus taught the woman of Samaria.
