Discover how the example of the Last Supper can help you uncover the secrets of true friendship.
Surrounded by people, yet feeling alone. This describes how many of us live, yearning for deeper relationships. Our desire to know others, and to be known by them in the same way, goes unfulfilled. This longing for intimacy and the community of true friendship is rooted in our very nature. Yet the number of shallow social interactions that we pour ourselves into on a daily basis ends up consuming our time and drawing us further away from the very type of community and friendships we need.
Break Bread Together will show you how to change these destructive patterns and nurture true community. Join Jessica as she guides you through Jesus’s last meal with his disciples. See how he cultivated these friendships and how you can develop new ways of bonding with your friends by following Jesus’s example. Through Scripture and personal stories, Jessica will show you how to gather as friends, to break bread together, and to open your heart to the life-giving friendships around you.
