November 14 : “The Chosen: A Story of the First Christmas”
The Chosen tells the story of the first Christmas through the eyes of a shepherd whose life of suffering and rejection changes when he and his fellow shepherds receive a miraculous revelation.
Simon, a disabled shepherd, struggles to keep pace with his counterparts, yet he diligently seeks to understand the ancient prophecies about the promised Messiah who will bring healing and hope to his people. Simon’s weakness makes him a pariah among his fellow Israelites, especially the leader of the synagogue who is disgusted by his imperfection.
Simon seems doomed to a life of pain and struggle as an outsider until a miraculous revelation allows him to to be part of the greatest moment in history.
November 21 – December 19: “It’s A Wonderful Life” Advent Study
It’s a Wonderful Life is one of the most popular and heart-warming films ever made. It’s near universal appeal and association with Christmas has provided a rich story of redemption that has inspired generations for decades.
It’s a Wonderful Life Study Guide examines this beloved holiday classic and reminds us how easily we can become distracted from what is truly meaningful in life. This five-week Bible study experience comes complete with discussion questions for each session, Scripture references, detailed character sketches, movie summary, and related commentary. In addition, video segments for each session are available for free online.
There’s no better time than at Christmas to be reminded that every human life has value and that true wealth, spiritual wealth, comes from a right relationship with God and selfless love toward others.
A book goes along with this study. Contact Anthony Caronna for book information.
