TURN: Pause, listen, and choose to follow Jesus
As Jesus was walking along, he saw Levi son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax booth, and he said to him, "Follow me." And he got up and followed him. – Mark 2:14
"Do you turn to Jesus Christ ...?" – Book of Common Prayer, Baptismal Covenant (302)
Like the disciples, we are called by Jesus to follow the Way of Love. With God's help, we can turn from the powers of sin, hatred, fear, injustice, and oppression toward the way of truth, love, hope, justice, and freedom. In turning, we reorient our lives to Jesus Christ, falling in love again, again, and again.
Reflections on the The Way:
• What practices help you to turn again and again to Jesus Christ and the Way of Love?
• How could you or do you incorporate these practices into your rhythm of life?
• Who will be your companion as your turn toward Jesus Christ?
