The Way of Love: Practices for a Jesus-Centered Life

Bishop Michael Curry, our Presiding Bishop, has invited all Episcopalians to join together in exploring the Way of Love, an outline of a Rule of Life which includes seven practices designed to help participants center themselves in Christ’s love so that they may be freed to live more loving, abundant lives, following the way of Jesus—The Way of Love. The Sunday Forum will take up a study of each of the seven practices, beginning November 11 at 9:30 AM in the Parish Hall. Please come join us!

The Way of Love will meet Sunday mornings from 9:30—10:30 AM in the Parish Hall.

The Seekers

The Seekers is an adult Sunday school class in which the members choose a topic, usually a video-based resource, to study for the semester or year. This fall the group will kick off the school year with Way of Life, a study program based on the book The Great Spiritual Migration: How the World's Largest Religion is Seeking a Better Way to Be Christian.

Each Sunday we will base our discussion on a video that we watch together and reading selected Bible passages together. This program challenges participants to focus less on doctrine, more on new ways of reading scripture, and ultimately on love as manifested in the life of Jesus. This program will last 4-6 weeks.

Then we will turn to a video series selected by the class from Work of the People entitled Different But Not Divided. The structure of the class is always such that it is not essential to be present for all the sessions; participants are invited to come when they are able, and all are welcome!

The Seekers will meet Sunday mornings from 9:30—10:30 AM in the Conference Room of the Grace Center. 

Bible Study

Note: The Bible Study is taking a break for several weeks beginning November 11. Please consider joining the Sunday Forum in the Parish Hall!

Last year we began to study the New Testament scriptures in Chronological order. By reading the New Testament chronologically we get a glimpse into the lives of our forebears. We can see their struggles as they came to grips with their new life in Christ, how to live in community with one another and those who were not of "The Way", and how to spread the "Good News" and what does it mean to spread the good news. We get to see how their beliefs and theology change over time and how that struggle changes them. Sound familiar? We face these questions and struggles today and so this is a particularly relevant way to study our scriptures.

This year we continue our study beginning with the Gospel of John. What do you need? The New Testament and the book Evolution of the Word: The New Testament in the Order the Books Were Written by Marcus Borg.

The Bible Study will meet Sundays from 9:30—10:30 AM in room 210 of the children's wing.
