The Way of Love

Practices for Jesus-Centered Life

Wednesday nights, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
March 13, 20, 27
April 3, 10

Last summer at General Convention, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry introduced “The Way of Love.” The Way of Love is not just a program or curriculum but rather a way of life, a commitment to follow Jesus, by consciously engaging in seven spiritual practices: Turn, Learn, Pray, Worship, Bless, Rest, and Go. Together they help us not only go deeper in our faith but actively engage the world as servants and co-missionaries with the Risen Christ.

This year at Lenten University, beginning March 13, and running on Wednesday evenings through April 10, we will look at these seven practices and ask the following questions: what is the practice? How are we are being called to engage in it? How does it help us know Jesus and follow Jesus both in our personal lives and in the world? With whom will we join in committing to the practice? Each week we will look specifically at following practices and then finally how they can be brought together:

March 13 - Turn and Learn
March 20 - Pray and Worship
March 27 - Bless and Rest
April 3 - Go
April 10 - Living the Way of Love

Each session will begin with a simple supper, followed by prayer, the evening program, and then ending in worship. Each will be a time for reflection, learning, fellowship, and engaging our curiosity as we seek to discern where God is calling us as individuals and a community.
