From the December 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 sixth 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 daily life as baptized Christians and as a parish community online here.
"We have been blessed, so that we might be a blessing . . . How can I be a blessing?" - Presiding Bishop Michael Curry
As we begin the season of Advent, a season of anticipation and preparation for the coming of Christ, we are reminded that in Jesus, God chooses to bless this world. Not the world of our ideals. Not the world of ancient times. Not the world of the future. But this world, in all of its messy imperfections, with all of its struggles and pain, with all of its triumphs and failures.
