Water is a central and sustaining force in our lives; it is also a central theme and metaphor in the gospel stories. Author Tom Gibbs examines the role of water in the ministry of Jesus in his long poem, "The Water Gospel," told from the point of view of Christ himself. Join Lori and Alice as they parse the lovely language and vivid imagery of this poem, using it as a springboard for conversations about miracles, spiritual language, faith and more.
