Walking the Way of Love

Edited by Courtney Cowart, Foreword by Michael B. Curry

Sep/2020, 160 Pages, PAPERBACK, 6 x 9

ISBN-13: 9781640652965



The presiding bishop’s advisors lay out a step-by-step way to nurture a profound friendship with God in Christ.

Walking the Way of Love is organized according to seven practices (Turn, Learn, Pray, Worship, Bless, Go, and Rest) and three ways of being (We Seek Love; We Seek Freedom; and We Seek Abundant Life).  The wisdom in this book allows people to move from the first tentative stages of wanting an experiential relationship with Jesus to having a real relationship that grows deeper every year. The seven simple practices spelled out in this book-- by highly experienced teachers and practitioners-- will enhance the reader's spiritual growth and open up love, freedom, and abundant life.

The stories and wisdom of these advisors will be helpful not just to seekers of faith, but also supportive to faith leaders who are guiding others in their development across the church.

Proceeds support The Way of Love Scholarship Fund.
