THE WAY OF LOVE
As the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement, we follow the Way of Jesus. His way is the Way of Love, and that love has the power to change lives and change the world. But what does the Way of Love actually look like? How does it work in real life?
This fall, continuing through November 11th (with one break for All Saints and baptism on Nov 4th!), we will explore each of the seven practices of the Way of Love — using a special lectionary, sermon reflection and forum after the 10:00am service. Adopting these practices as a “rule of life” – a way of living – can assist us in a more Jesus-centered life and share that loving, liberating, life-giving way in the world.
TURN: Pause, listen and choose to follow Jesus
LEARN: Reflect on Scripture each day, especially on Jesus’ life and teachings.
PRAY: Dwell intentionally with God daily
WORSHIP: Gather in community weekly to thank, praise, and dwell with God
BLESS: Share faith and unselfishly give and serve
GO: Cross boundaries, listen deeply and live like Jesus
REST: Receive the gift of God’s grace, peace, and restoration
