Lenten Study – Way of Love
Based on the book “Way of Love: Recovering the Heart of Christianity” by Norman Wirzba
It’s often said that God is love, yet his message of compassion and caring for others is often overshadowed by the battles dividing us politically, culturally, and religiously. Why does Christianity matter if it isn’t about love? asks Duke University professor of Theology and Ecology Norman Wirzba. The Way of Love invites readers to experience Christianity that is centered on love. Everything is precious, valued, and treasured by God. Extensive theological training cannot replace the way of love that transforms and connects each of us to God and the faith, Wirzba contends.
Join us for this study as we discuss the author’s claims that the purpose of life is to learn how to love, love God, each other, ourselves, and the creation that God gave to sustain our lives. Imagine what the church would look like if the main purpose was to be a school that taught people how to love God, others, and themselves?
Classes for this study begin the week of February 18th and will meet for approximately 5-6 weeks. The following class times are available:
