When Jesus walked the earth, He had a few close friends; people who brought him joy, comfort and companionship. Mary and her siblings were some of those precious few. Have you ever wondered how Mary might have experienced Jesus? What did she see, feel, hear, touch and taste as she wholeheartedly embraced this new teacher? What was her heart-cry when her precious brother died and Jesus was not there? How did she express her joy and gratitude when Lazarus was restored to her, alive and well? What motivated her extravagant display of adoration and worship as she anointed Jesus’ feet in spite of the disapproval of sneering religious leaders and frowning disciples. What might these events have been like from Mary’s perspective? Come with me as we immerse ourselves in Mary’s Story as she encountered Jesus in life transforming ways. Come and be transformed!
