S2:E6 Going into the Neighborhood to Listen Deeply

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.

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.

S2:E7 Praying with Our Bodies and Our Creativity

Prayer is inviting and dwelling in God’s loving presence - a practice that can sometimes be daunting, but is ultimately one of the most important things we do as Christians. Whether by boldly offering our thanksgivings and concerns to God, simply listening for God’s voice in our lives, or infusing our work with prayer, we can find ourselves drawing nearer and nearer to him.

S2:E5 Worshiping in Public as Witness

When we worship, we gather with others before God. We hear the Good News of Jesus Christ, give thanks, confess, and offer the brokenness of the world to God. So many of our worship experiences take place within a church building - it can be hard to imagine worship without candles and stained glass and pews - but there are many ways we can bring worship out into the wider world, knowing that God is waiting out there, too.
