The Way of Love is a way of life—seven practices to help you know the loving, liberating, life-giving way of Jesus. Ready to follow the Way of Love? Check out these resources for the different seasons of the church year.
Epiphany: Learn—with the Good Book Club
Along the Way of Love, 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 goodbookclub.org.
Lent & Easter: Life Transformed
The Episcopal Church will soon release “Life Transformed: The Way of Love in Lent and Easter.” This seasonal resource will include an adult forum curriculum based on readings from the Easter Vigil, a Quiet Day plan, and resources for an Easter season of action. Download a preview of Life Transformed.
Church Publishing offers a companion 40-day devotional for Lent. Living the Way of Love by Mary Bea Sullivan tells stories about seeking and finding a deeper connection to God.
Ascension to Pentecost: PRAY—Thy Kingdom Come
Led by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Christians around the world will join together in twelve days of prayer for the spread of God’s love. Learn more and get ready for this energizing global movement of prayer at thykingdomcome.global.
Anytime: Resources for Individuals and Small Groups
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. Great for vestries and ministry leadership groups, too.
