Although we have already started our Lenten Adult Education program, The Way of Love, it’s not too late to join us for the remaining sessions in the series. Championed by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, The Way of Love is an intentional commitment to a set of practices. It's a commitment to follow Jesus: Turn, Learn, Pray, Worship, Bless, Go, Rest.” This set of seven Adult Forums ties the Easter Vigil readings to the seven practices of the Way of Love. Drawing on the ancient practice of setting aside Lent as a period of study and preparation for living as a Christian disciple (known as the catechumenate), the forums encourage participants to reflect on salvation history; walk toward the empty tomb; and embrace the transforming reality of love, life, and liberation.
Session Four / BLESS: A New Heart and a New Spirit (Ezekiel 36:24-28)
Session Five / REST: The Valley of Dry Bones (Ezekiel 37:1-14)
Session Six / WORSHIP: The Gathering of God’s People (Zephaniah 3:12-20)
Session Seven / GO: The Empty Tomb (Luke 24:1-12)
You can learn more about The Way of Love from this video with Presiding Bishop Curry.
There are two opportunities to engage in the “Way”! - Sunday morning Faith Forums at 9 am, and our Monday Evening class at 7 pm. Each Sunday/Monday will deal with the same material; the Monday evening opportunities will allow for a bit more discussion, but the subject matter will be the same). There are no books/resources necessary!
