My thoughts on Session 1: “He Chose to be One of Us”

  • Jesus wore the crown of thorns which is identical to the curse in Genesis on the plants
  • My favorite Disney movie is “Beauty and the Beast” I never saw Jesus in this story

Questions:

  • What part resonated with you the most?
  • Do you believe in Lent?

 

My biggest takeaway from this was remembering that the crown of thorns was a GIFT. That changed my perspective a lot. And so often at my church, the women’s conferences are full of flower crowns or literal crowns, and it makes it even more powerful to think that Jesus enables us to wear these crowns and to be joyful because he took the lesser crown for us.
