MONDAY MORNING WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY
9:00-9:45 AM, Armstrong Room
We are studying the “Way of Love” series, which will include podcasts from Presiding Bishop Michael Curry. “The Way of Love” is a way of life. More than a program, it is a return to the ancient pathways and Rules of Life that followers of Jesus have observed for centuries. The deep roots of the Christian tradition offer a spiritual path toward a deeper relationship with God, neighbor, and self. For centuries, monastic communities have shaped their lives around rhythms and disciplines for following Jesus together. Such a pattern is known as a “rule of life.” When we commit to turn, learn, pray, worship, bless, go, and rest, we are engaging in and growing a rule of life. We will begin each Bible Study with a podcast from Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, as he teaches us how we can use the Way of Love to train up our spirits, just like athletes train their bodies. Please join us for this nine-week series. All women of the parish are welcome!
