Lent: The Way of Love
Practices for Jesus Centered Life
Like most other things in life, faith takes practice. This Lenten season, we will begin to examine The Way of Love, an intentional commitment to daily Christian practices that shape our lives.
We invite you to join a small group with fellow parishioners committed to experimenting with one of three habits: Learn, Pray, Worship. Each group discussion will include time for bible study, sharing of victories and learnings, as well as practical steps to let these practices intentionally shape our days.
Our program begins the week of March 11 and ends the week of April 8. Groups will meet:
Monday evenings at 7:30PM, beginning with Evening prayer
Tuesday mornings at 11AM, ending with noonday prayer
Learn: By reading and reflecting on Scripture, especially the life and teachings of Jesus, we draw near to God and God’s word dwells in us. When we open our minds and hearts to Scripture, we learn to see God’s story and God’s activity in everyday life.
Pray: Jesus teaches us to come before God with humble hearts, boldly offering our thanksgivings and concerns to God or simply listening for God’s voice in our lives and in the world. Whether in thought, word or deed, individually or corporately, when we pray we invite and dwell in God’s loving presence.
Worship: When we worship, we gather with others before God. We hear the Good News of Jesus Christ, give thanks, confess, and offer the brokenness of the world to God. As we break bread, our eyes are opened to the presence of Christ. By the power of the Holy Spirit, we are made one body, the body of Christ sent forth to live the Way of Love.
