Engage ‘The Way of Love’ Throughout the Liturgical Year
New resource, Life Transformed: The Way of Love in Lent and Easter, coming soon
Episcopalians are invited to explore The Way of Love, Practices for Jesus-Centered Life throughout the liturgical year. More than a program or curriculum, The Way of Love is an intentional commitment to a set of practices – Turn, Learn, Pray, Worship, Bless, Go, Rest – that form us into the likeness of Jesus.
To assist congregations, dioceses, and communities of faith in engaging The Way of Love, The Episcopal Church and partnering organizations offer resources for every time of the year:
The Way of Love Small Group Facilitation Guide and Curriculum (9 sessions) is an essential resource for forming a small group, shaping a Rule of Life, and growing in relationship with God and each other.
The Good Book Club is a method supporting The Way of Love in which we read and learn from scripture each day, with a special focus on the life and teachings of Jesus. This Epiphany join any of the Good Book Club efforts and spend a season with Paul’s letter to the Romans. Learn more at http://www.goodbookclub.org, an initiative of Forward Movement.

Life Transformed: The Way of Love in Lent and Easter is a seasonal resource, complete with Adult Forums, a Quiet Day and an Easter season of action. Partner efforts are welcome. Share your ministry’s plans at firstname.lastname@example.org.
