Season 3 of The Episcopal Church’s podcast The Way of Love with Bishop Michael Curry, is now available. These weekly conversations, featuring Bishop Curry, podcast host Sandy Milien, and a variety of guests, center on ways to live a life committed to living the way of God’s unconditional, unselfish, sacrificial and redemptive love.

Season 3 changes include longer conversations between Bishop Curry and his guests: faith leaders, authors, and thinkers who are committed to following the Way of Jesus in the world today. Framed by the Way of Love – those seven practices of turning, learning, praying, worshipping, blessing, going, and resting – listeners will hear stories and lessons about how they can grow closer to God in daily life.

In this episode, Bishop Curry talks with Richard Rohr, OFM, about what it takes to turn and follow a Christ who is as big as the Universe, choosing the Way of Love instead of the way of our ego. The two discuss the Spirituality of Addition vs. the Spirituality of Subtraction, and the consequences for our country and ourselves when we spend more time placing Jesus on a pedestal than we do actively following him as we live our daily lives.  This episode of The Way of Love Podcast is sponsored by Church Divinity School of the Pacific.

Season 3 episodes and guests include:
