The Way of Love is a way of life. More than a program or curriculum, it is an intentional commitment to follow Jesus by following seven practices: Turn, Learn, Pray, Worship, Bless, Go, Rest. Episcopalians and others looking to engage the Way of Love and learn more about each of the individual practices are invited to Explore the Way of Love in a new series of short videos and accompanying primer cards from The Episcopal Church.
The videos and primer cards, available in English and Spanish, are downloadable for use in parishes and dioceses. Each of the three-to-four-minute videos feature an explanation of the practices of the Way of Love – Turn, Learn, Pray, Worship, Bless, Go, and Rest. Individuals, congregations, or small groups can view the videos as an introduction to each practice and use the printable primer cards to start building personalized rules of life. Explore the Way of Love can also be used for online instruction as well, and in conjunction with any of the Way of Love curricula. Supporting materials about the Way of Love are found at episcopalchurch.org/wayoflove.
“Our hope is that these short videos will be both versatile in use and inspiring in content,” says Jerusalem Greer, staff officer for evangelism, “Helping congregations dive deeper into each of the practices while providing a compelling invitation to those new to the Way of Love.”
Explore the Way of Love is another of the many Way of Love resources available here for congregations and individuals who are interested in engaging more deeply with these practices, building and deepening a rule of life.
