God reveals Himself to His people as “I AM” and comes to redeem us. Jesus applies the title “I AM” to himself as God’s divinity. Join us as we discuss the “I AM” statements, from the Gospel of John, which will reveal to us the identity of Jesus.
I AM the Bread of Life
Thursday, March 4, 2021
S. Barbara Leonhard
The first “I Am” statement in John’s gospel is “I am the Bread of Life.” Jesus’s identification with bread signifies many layers of meaning. We will look at the significance of bread at the Passover setting, and other symbolic meanings of bread, the most basic form of nourishment. We find ourselves hungering for meaning and for God at this time in our lives!
I AM the Light of the World
Thursday, March 11, 2021
Jan Erlenbaugh Gaddis
How do we awaken to the Light within, the mystical and Divine in us? We will go within, into the darkness where the Light of Christ shines. We will explore the mystery of darkness and lightness in the dyings and risings of our lives; the endings and the new beginnings. Celebrate the transformations Light brings to our lives and how our Light connects us to each other!
I AM the Good Shepherd
Thursday, March 18, 2021
I AM the Good Shepherd
S. Delouise Menges
Teacher & Pastoral Minister
During the Lenten season, we are drawn to the compassionate heart of God, who tends us in our vulnerabilities. John’s Gospel depicts the “I AM” as Shepherd, leading and nurturing us into strength and wholeness. Let us explore together the tender relationship between the Shepherd of Souls and the flock he guides!
I AM the Resurrection and the Life
Thursday, March 25, 2021
From the Gospel of John, in the middle of the story of the death of Lazarus, we read these words from Jesus: “I am the resurrection and the life.” Together we will unpack and explore the richness and evocative emotions of this powerful, poignant, and important portrait of the life of Christ. Join us as we explore this “I AM” statement that reveals to us the identity of Jesus.
