The Way of Love

Practices for a Jesus-Centered Life

Explore the Way of Love

The Way of Love is more than a program or curriculum – it is an intentional commitment to following Jesus as individuals, in small groups, and with our congregations. By turning, learning, praying, worshiping, blessing, going, and resting, we will deepen our spiritual lives, growing closer to God and each other.

These videos and primer cards can help you and your congregation or small group more fully engage each practice of the Way of Love – building a living faith and deepening your rule of life. You can play the videos as an introduction to each practice and use the printable primers to start building your personalized rule.
