An Online Lenten Book Group is forming for Monday evenings, meeting weekly from February 20 – April 3 on Zoom beginning at 7:00. Each meeting will last an hour and be led by Cynthia Miller.
The book is Living the Way of Love: A 40-Day Devotional by Mary Bea Sullivan. Copies of the book will be available at church (at no charge) by February 12.
“Living the Way of Love offers forty brief reflections about the seven Jesus-centered practices identified by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry in "The Way of Love" initiative. Sullivan tells stories from her own and others' experiences as a starting point for discussion about how to seek and find a deeper connection to God. Rotating through each practice so that each is covered once a week, going deeper into the practice throughout the forty days, each reflection ends with questions designed to spur further discussion and assist readers in making the practices their own.” Meditation titles include: “Standing at the Hog Trough,” “Kneeling at the Rail,” “Airplane Mode,” and “Dining and Dashing.” Each of those titles sounds eminently relatable to Cynthia Miller, facilitator. At each meeting, we will reflect on the week’s readings and share an activity that covers one of the seven practices of The Way of Love. If there is interest, this Way of Love group may continue throughout Eastertide.
