Getting Started with the Way of Love
1. Read Presiding Bishop Curry’s invitation.
Where did this whole "Way of Love" come from? Is this something I have to do? Is this for everyone? Read this invitation letter to find out the answers to these important questions.
2. Watch the video that introduces the Way and each practice.
This piece, featuring images and video from across our common life in the Episcopal Church, gives a brief overview of each of the seven practices of the Way of Love: Turn. Learn. Pray. Worship. Bless. Go. Rest.
3. Use the “Introducing the Way of Love” document to reflect on practices and imagine how God is leading you to engage.
This document explores how each of the seven practices - and a rule of life, itself - has a basis in Scripture and our Episcopal tradition. The question is: how can you engage those practices using your gifts, talents, and calling? Use the reflection and discernment questions to find out more. Available for download in English, Spanish, Creole, French and Chinese.
4. Connect with a church community.
