This month the video series, “The Journey-Shepherding God’s People” focuses on the shortest verse in the bible: “Jesus Wept”. This video examines the humanity of Jesus Christ and how he dealt with the death of a close friend. The video series and accompanying tools are designed to help those feeling separated from their faith community get connected. 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.
“In this story Jesus actually raises Lazarus from the dead. This is not the only time that Jesus performs such a miracle. He raises the dead son of a widow and a centurion’s daughter.” said Rev. Carol Jubenville, Program Coordinator. “These are precursors for his own resurrection and a reminder that we too will rise from the dead on the last day.”
This video series is intended to bring people living in senior housing, assisted living, skilled nursing and for those 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 uplifting message, familiar 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.
The videos and other content are available on the web site www.TheJourneyVideo.com. Included on the website are blogs and bible studies that coincide with each video allowing for deeper understanding of the message and scriptures. The program is funded by St. Joseph’s Pastoral Care, Inc., and all content and videos are offered at no charge and are copywritten.
