Come to the Way of Love, leave with a Rule of Life

The second Way of Love class will meet after a two-week break, on Sunday, September 29, at 11:30 AM in Puddicombe Hall. It repeats on Monday, September 30 in the Ada Webb Room. Our focus will be “Learn,” that is, practical ways we can learn about Jesus, expand our experience of the Gospels and broaden our exposure to scripture. Dave Tinsley will be the facilitator.

Fr. Martin, Tom Egnew, Pam Tinsley, and Dave Tinsley are offering a seven-part series on Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s Way of Love. Each Sunday class repeats on the following Monday evening.

What is the Way of Love?

The Way of Love is a way of life. More than a program or curriculum, it is a return to the ancient pathways and Rules of Life that followers of Jesus have observed for centuries. They knew the power of commitment to a core set of practices – Turn, Learn, Pray, Worship, Bless, Go, Rest – and the power of gathering in a small group where you find love and support for living into these commitments. If we hope to not only worship Jesus but to grow more like him and bear his redeeming love in the world, we can adopt a RULE OF LIFE like the Way of Love and find a community with which to practice it.

What is a Rule of Life? How Do I Begin?

A Rule of Life is an intentional commitment to a set of practices that provide guidance, rhythm and inspiration for living a beautiful, meaningful and holy life. As we place these practices at the heart of our daily lives and join with companions who share the commitment, we grow more and more in the unselfish, hope-filled Way of Love that Jesus embodied in the world.

Each class will explore one of the phases of the Way of Love and will seek to encourage all participants to share their experiences and insights. Please join us.
