"It's not just that Jesus was a Jew, Jesus still is a Jew. Engaging Jewish practice and tradition is one important way of overcoming the gaps that we sometimes feel exist between Jesus and ourselves."
So begins Lauren Winner on the powerful new Mudhouse Sabbath DVD. Designed to be a course in Christian formation all by itself, or as a companion to her bestselling book, this resource will challenge you to:
- Encounter the Jewish context that nurtured Jesus
- Explore spiritual practices of hospitality, mindful eating, prayer and fasting, and mourning
- Deepen your Christian faith by incorporating these things into your life
Divided into seven sections or lessons, with discussion topics filmed on location, this 65-minute DVD resource will help you or your study group explore how our faith is rooted in ancient, Jewish, spiritual traditions and ritual. Through the expertise and personal experiences of Lauren Winner, Mudhouse Sabbath DVD will challenge you to practice your faith in ways that are biblical, Christ-like, and imminently practical.
