When we go on the Way of Love, we cross boundaries, listen deeply, and live like Jesus. Whether God calls us to go across the street or across the world, we are sent beyond our circles and comfort to witness to the love, justice, and truth of God with our lips and with our lives.
In this episode, Bishop Michael Curry and hosts Kyle and Sandy discuss “going” on the Way of Love. We learn about both sides of the practice: having the faith to step out into the world and being able to receive the gift of hospitality graciously. Bishop Curry tells a story of trust - about coming to understand that God is already present, wherever we are sent.
We also hear from the Rev. Katie Nakamura Rengers, founder of The Abbey, a church and coffee shop ministry in the Avondale neighborhood of Birmingham, Alabama. We learn about the ways this community both serves and is served by loving neighbors -- neighbors who might be looking for more than an excellent cup of coffee.
