Traveling the Way of Love, Episode 7: Learn, the final installment of the first season of  the Way of Love video series from The Episcopal Church Office of Communication, premieres December 3, 3:00pm EDT on The Episcopal Church website and on The Episcopal Church Facebook page.

Hosted by Chris Sikkema, the Office of Communication’s manager for special projects, Traveling the Way of Love shares stories of the ways people across The Episcopal Church practice the Way of Love with each episode highlighting one of the seven Way of Love practices: turn, learn, pray, worship, bless, go, and rest. This seventh episode focuses on Learn. 

In this episode, Sikkema speaks with Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry about engaging with scripture, reflecting on Jesus’ life, and living the Way of Love as ways to learn and grow personally and spiritually.  When asked about adopting the Way of Love as a rule of life, Curry explains, “The Way of Love is a way of de-centering self. To make God the center of our lives, is to make the way of love that Jesus taught the center of our lives. Until that way of love becomes the content and the source of our life, and then the spirit of Jesus becomes our way of life. And as we do that, a new life becomes possible for us. We lose the fake self, and discover the real self. And when that happens, the image of God that we are becomes real. For God is love, and we become love.”

Watch for Season 2 of Traveling the Way of Love in 2020.
