Journeying the Way of Love: Practices for Jesus-Centered Life
Wednesdays December 9 and 16, January 13 and 20.

Jesus’ way is the Way of Love, and that love has the power to change lives and change the world. Do you seek a life centred on Jesus? Do you seek to explore and live his Way of Love? (Bishop Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop (Primate) of The Episcopal Church )
We will explore how we can live the Way of Love during Advent, Christmass and Epiphany through seven spiritual practices.
The study will be in the Darnell Room (Booking advised) & on Zoom.
