Way of Love Resources
During his sermon at the Opening Eucharist of the 79th General Convention on July 5, Presiding Bishop Curry formally invited the whole church to take up the Way of Love: Practices for a Jesus-Centered Life, as a Rule for the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement. The Presiding Bishop offered this rule as a way for us as a church together grow more deeply with Jesus Christ at the center of our lives, so we can bear witness to his way of love in and for the world.
The Way of Love was designed to be spare and spacious, so that individuals, ministry groups, congregations, and networks can flesh it out in unique ways and build a church-wide treasure trove of stories and resources. There is no specific order you need to follow. If you already keep a Rule or spiritual disciplines, you might reflect and discover how that path intersects with this one. By entering into reflection, discernment and commitment around the practices of Turn - Learn - Pray - Worship - Bless - Go - Rest.
Forma believes that The Way of Love is a wonderful way to encourage and practice formation in your congregations, community, and homes, and is excited to share the following resources:
