Four sessions for faith sharing on Scenes from a Parish
The Guide offers a total of four faith-sharing sessions:
|Theme 1: |
What do we “see”?
|Faith sharing based on viewing the complete film, with reflection suggestions and sharing questions that invite comparison with the Gospel episode of the man born blind (John 9).|
|Theme 2: Compassion||An invitation to explore the what, the how, but above all, the why of Christian compassion. The session launches the sharing with the dramatic episode of the last judgment (Matthew 25), and an initial video clip exploring “Slipping compassion.” |
There is then a choice of:
“I was a stranger …”
|This presents the fundamental Christian question of “Who is my neighbor?” illustrated by three video clips highlighting contrasting situations.|
|Theme 2B: |
“I was hungry …”
|Constructed around three video clips from the film, plus a clip from the “Q and A” session at Boston College that show hunger is very real in our communities today—but so too are the potential solutions!|
|Theme 3: |
Babel … or Pentecost?
|How are parishes today to be a unified communities, when they are made up of people from such diverse cultures? The challenges—and blessings—of cultural diversity are raised by five video clips from the film, plus a clip from the “Q and A” session at Boston College.|
