The Way of Love: A Practical Guide to Following Jesus
by Scott Gunn with a foreword by Bishop Michael Curry
Sundays, 11:45 – 12:30 pm, via Zoom
From the Introduction by Bishop Curry:
“A few years ago, a group of Episcopalians gathered in Atlanta to help me think about how to encourage all of us as the church to be the modern iteration of the Jesus Movement. We soon realized that we didn’t have to invent something new.
The deep roots of Judaism and Christianity offer rich and time-tested spiritual practices and disciplines, ways of prayer, meditation, study, hospitality, and witness. For centuries, these practices have helped to draw those who engaged them into a loving, liberating, and life-giving relationship with God and into loving, liberating, and life-giving relationships with others and with God’s world. The folks we speak of as saints consistently engaged these spiritual practices, which nourished in them a Jesus-centered life of love and witness.
We wondered: What would happen if we asked every Episcopalian to adopt these practices for a Jesus-centered life? How would God, through us, change lives and the world?
The group developed the concept of the Way of Love. But to be certain, it is not a program, done once and put away on a shelf. The Way of Love is a set of ancient spiritual practices to help every Episcopalian develop a Jesus-centered rule of life…
This book offers a guide to embarking on the Way of Love. It is full of practical advice for how to embrace the seven Way of Love spiritual practices with an approach that is authentic and personal. My prayer is that this book will help you and me and all of us to throw our very lives into the hands of Jesus, such that his way of love becomes our way of life, and his life becomes ours.”bishop michael curry
