About The Event
The Chosen is a Christian historical drama series created, directed and co-written by filmmaker Dallas Jenkins. Jenkins intended the show to differ from previous portrayals of Jesus by crafting a story arc that focused more deeply on the people who encountered Jesus and viewing him through their eyes. His goal was to present Jesus in a way that was more "personal, intimate, [and] immediate". [Wikipedia]
We know that our places of work and play are often not safe places to talk about our spirituality. We believe that creating such a safe space is important, a space in which to watch and discuss each episode of "The Chosen", digging deeper into the narrative and production. We don't have any expectation you'll join our church, only that you will leave better informed and more knowlegeable about Jesus and the people who followed him.
If you are a fan of screenwriters like Aaron Sorkin ("The West Wing", "The Newsroom", "Charlie Wilson's War"), you'll enjoy "The Chosen"
We screened episode 1 on November 15 and are watching subsequent episodes every Wednesday to December 13. We take a break over Christmas and pick up again January 3 and end mid-January.
So come and enjoy an evening watching a well-crafted series. Coffee, tea, juice and popcorn will be served. No admission fee, no cost, no offering taken.
