"The Chosen" is a compelling video series that has captured the hearts and minds of people across the globe, people from all faiths, young and old. Written with a contemporary flair, “The Chosen” brings the Gospel Stories to life. Applying artistic interpretation to historical facts, the series is being credited for setting a new standard in depicting Christ. It allows its viewers to reimagine what it might have been like to encounter Jesus, the man and the Messiah.
During this five-week Lenten series, we will apply the week’s Lectionary readings to vignettes from The Chosen, using them as a springboard to engage in discussions around universal questions and challenges about faith, purpose, and belief – questions that are as relevant today as they were over 2000 years ago. Like Paul on the road to Damascus or the disciples following his call, how can we look more personally at the life of Jesus, and how might we apply his teachings in our world today?
Come join us for a time of sharing and rich dialogue. Please feel free to invite your friends.
The Lenten Forum Series is held in the Parish Hall immediately following the 10:00 service. Remaining dates:
· March 12
· March 19
· March 26
