The Bethany We Know - Exploring relationship in the company of Jesus
AUTHOR Penny Roker RSM
Penny explores the idea of relationship, particularly in a group context, through an examination of scripture stories that take place in and around Bethany. This village near Jerusalem was a home away from home for Jesus, a community like any other with its sufferings and petty conflicts, as well as its great loves and friendships.
With suggestions for personal and group reflection, this engaging work illuminates key scripture passages from the parable of the Good Samaritan to the raising of Lazarus, and is intended for anyone wishing to fortify their communication skills or rekindle friendships. We are invited to set aside prejudices and take time to understand the other in a spirit of generosity and acceptance.
