Can Jesus really meet you wherever you are? Does He really care about you just like you are? Can he fix the mess that your life has become? These are the questions that Meredith, Kelly, and Tamara face when their friend Jill invites them on a once in a lifetime trip to Jerusalem. These dear friends from high school have seen the past twenty years not only separate them, but tarnish their once undaunted optimism for life. Was this really the way that life was supposed to turn out?
Their adventure in Jerusalem includes some colorful characters and surprising twists, but the encounter that transforms them takes place at a well that has heard the stories of the broken-hearted for 2000 years. It seems as if this ancient well has become holy ground as the stories surrounding Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection come alive all around them. The love of their friend brings them face to face with the transforming love of Jesus. And just when they think they understand both, the stunning conclusion of this story reveals more than they could have imagined.
Stories inspire us, but encounters transform us!
