Here’s an audio meditation from a year ago. From the beginning of COVID, and it rings very true to me.

John chapter 4
So he came to a town in Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of ground Jacob had given to his son Joseph. 6 Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about noon. 7 When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” 8 (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.) 9 The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans. 10 Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”

The caption says, “The Christ speaks to the Samaritan.”
In almost all the icons of this remarkable conversation, the Samaritan town (Sychar, Shechem, Nablus) and two mountains (Gerizim certainly, and Ebal or Zion) are in the background.
