Traveling the Way of Love Episode 4: Turn

Episode and Resources available
July 23, 2019

Traveling the Way of Love, Episode 4: Turn, the latest installment of a new video series from The Episcopal Church Office of Communication, is now available for viewing on The Episcopal Church website (click on Turn) and on The Episcopal Church Facebook page.

Focusing on the practice Turn, host Chris Sikkema visits Thistle Farms in Nashville to talk with the Rev. Becca Stevens, founder and president about how, 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 this episode we see and hear stories of transformation as people choose to turn towards Jesus, turning from a broken system to a way of healing, from a life of pain to a life of wholeness, from our own inadequacies to fulfilment.

To facilitate the use of this video by individuals or small groups for discernment and reflection, an Episode Guide, reflection, and the Way of Love’s podcast episode Turn as well as other resources are provided here.

Traveling the Way of Love shares stories of the ways people across The Episcopal Church practice the Way of Love with each episode highlighting one of the seven Way of Love practices: turn, learn, pray, worship, bless, go, and rest. This fourth episode focuses on Turn.  Three additional episodes are planned for 2019; watch for them in September, October and November. Each episode is built around one of the seven practices central to The Way of Love: turn, learn, pray, worship, bless, go, rest.
