What is Intimacy?
Intimacy = "no fear"
Respond to the following questions in your notes:
- Can we be intimate and not have sex? How?
- Who are people that you are intimate with? How do you demonstrate or show intimacy with them?
Eucharist is one of the ultimate ways that Jesus can be intimate with us today. We recall this Last Supper every time we celebrate mass and most particularly on Holy Thursday.
How did Jesus demonstrate intimacy? With your partner, brainstorm a list of at least four biblical stories in which he shows intimacy.
