From the September Perspective,
the newsletter of Church of Our Saviour:
Beginning last year at General Convention, our Presiding Bishop, Michael Curry, began laying out a vision for renewal across the Church. In longstanding Christian tradition, renewal often involves returning -- returning to our roots as Christians. Bishop Curry's approach summons up the very heart of Jesus' teaching -- the Way of Love -- and a very ancient way of approaching Jesus' Way through a Rule of Life.
This is the third in a series of articles on this structured way to practice a Jesus-Centered Life, and I encourage you to go and learn more about renewing this intentional commitment in our dail life as baptized Christians and as a parish community online here.
"Every day, what can I learn from the Word of God through the reading of scripture, the reading of spiritual materials that help to train up the spirit...to wrestle and live with scripture, paying particulare attention to those passages and teachings where we actually hear the voice of Jesus?" -Presiding Bishop Michael Curry
Our Christian tradition is deeply rooted in learning, and we can think of the Church as a school from which we never graduate -- a body that is constantly learning from an ongoing conversation with our scriptural tradition and the gift of the Spirit moving anew among us.
