I Am… CHOSEN

Join us as we engage deeper into our friendship with Jesus.
The bible is filled with so many amazing stories of what Jesus did.
He taught and performed many incredible miracles.
He made some awesome friends.
Let’s see the bible come alive and get to know him more.

Chosen Lunch Special featuring Mary Magdalene

Before we meet, watch The Chosen Season 1 – Episode 1.

Then over lunch, let’s gather and share our insights with one another. Each time we meet we want to focus our discussion around the friends that Jesus made. In episode 1 we will focus on the character of Mary Magdalene.

Mary Magdalene. She is an amazing hero of the faith. And in our Catholic tradition we can befriend saints like Mary and build a relationship with her, seeing her as an older sister. Get to know her and her story because all the characters we will meet through this series points us to that ultimate relationship with Jesus. It’s definitely one way that makes meeting Jesus so real and personal! So here is what we can ruminate on:

  • You’ll see how a scripture from Isaiah leaves a lasting impression on her heart. It brings her a lot of consolation and a deep peace. What are some words that you remember as a child that brought you a sense of worthiness, belonging, or safety? 
  • Place yourself in Mary Magdalene’s shoes and allow God to reveal his love and peace for you. Read Isaiah 43:1-4 and re-watch the ending of this episode.
  • Take some time and mull on this question. What was it about Jesus that she was able to connect with?

 

When we gather, we will take time to hear how God wants to speak to us through this same scripture passage, Isaiah 43:1-4. God wants to capture your heart and show you how much he loves you.
