the way of love...TURN

For the week of Sunday, September 16, 2018
"Follow Me..."

This Sunday we're beginning our special series called, "The Way of Love: Practices for Jesus-Centred Life". 

The practice we'll be exploring this week is TURN: Pause, listen and choose to follow Jesus. Like the tax collector in Mark 2:13-22, we are called by Jesus to follow the Way of Love, to turn from the powers that have us in their grip that do not lead to life. In turning, we orient our lives to following Jesus, again and again.

What practices help you to turn again and again to Jesus, and the Way of Love? How do you incorporate these practices into your rhythm of life? Who are your companions on the way? 

As always, there will be spirited singing, heart-felt prayer, inclusive community, and the company of others on the Way of Love - this Sunday, and every Sunday.

See you in church!
~ Rev. Michelle
