Class: The Way of Love - Suns. 9:15am thru 11/10
Join our clergy in exploring concrete ways to center our lives on Christ and experience the mystery of God's unconditional and redemptive love. The Way of Love is a way of life, it is a return to the ancient pathways and Rules of Life that followers of jesus have observed for centuries. They knew the power of commitment to a core set of practices: Turn, Learn, Pray, Worship, Bless, Go, Rest. And they knew the ideal way to walk this path is in a loving community.
Each session in this series will be devoted to one of the spiritual practices. We will meet between Sunday services, 9:15-10:05am in the Sts. Francis & Clare room, above the church administration offices. Attendance at all sessions is encouraged, to better immerse yourself in the full spectrum of spiritual practices but, as always, drop-ins are welcome.
