The video series, “The Journey-Shepherding God’s People” is announcing the release of “The Woman at the Well”; in what is considered an unusual encounter which crossed ethnic barriers and resulted in a life changed for the better. This interaction between a man and a woman, a Samaritan and a Jew was an encounter frowned upon at that time. The video series “The Journey-Shepherding God’s People” and accompanying tools are designed for those feeling separated from their faith community. The series is comprised of the video time of worship, a blog and three bible studies that can be used as a Spiritual Wellness program for those in their third chapter of life wherever they live.
“The man and woman did meet; a sinner and the Messiah. And they did talk. And the woman’s life because Jesus opened her eyes to her sinfulness and to the gifts that He offered — living water that heralds everlasting life.” said Rev. Carol Jubenville, Program Coordinator. “From one brief encounter with a stranger, her life was changed and given new purpose, as was the life of the villagers who heard her testimony.” The bible study will explore: the relationship between the Samaritans and the Jews and the cultural divide that made this encounter so unusual.
This video series is designed to bring people who are living in senior housing, assisted living, skilled nursing and those who are finding it difficult to attend church services, a sense that their faith community has not forgotten them. The viewer(s) will be able to experience a time of worship with an exciting message, uplifting hymns, and centering prayers. As we bring “church’ into your home Reverend Carol Jubenville, a Methodist Pastor and Fr. John Buehler, a Roman Catholic Priest, will review scripture and discuss thoughtful ways in which you will be able to connect to your faith journey.
