The Passions of Jesus Study is Now Available

 

The Passions of Jesus, a six-week, video-driven Lenten study developed by the Western North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church, is now available for download. 

Study materials are available at 
wnccumc.org/passionsofjesus

From that website, you can download the files for the six videos and study guide. You can also stream the videos on YouTube, listen to a curated music playlist on Spotify and go deeper by listening to the full 15- to 30-minute conversations on our podcast, Means of Grace. (Podcast episodes will be released weekly, throughout Lent.)

As a reminder, in this study we look at the interconnectedness of Christ’s passion for us, Christ’s passion for others, and our passion reflected back, for Christ and for others. As we journey together through Lent, we will look at what scripture tells us Jesus cared about and how that impacts what and who we care about.

This study is available for free to anyone who would like to use it, so please share this with your friends!
