132nd Annual Convention

October 3-5, 2019

The Way of Love is an intentional commitment to a set of ancient practices and commitment to follow Jesus as we: Turn, Learn, Pray, Worship, Bless, Go, and Rest. Three things are true about the Episcopal Church right now. First, our traditional models of ministry and practices of community are being challenged by sociological trends over which we as church have little control. Second, there is increasingly limited time and treasure within our communities available for traditional church cultures and expectations. But third, the Episcopal Church is experiencing a renaissance of research and resources right now on sustainable, fruitful, and joyful ministry to meet these challenges, chief among these the transformative resource of the Way of Love. The Rev. Dr. Tricia Lyons will shared the most current research on what is working and why in faith communities across our denomination. She shared suggestions on how to use resources like the Way of Love to strengthen and deepen the joy and justice that flows from our discipleship of Christ in our communities of faith.
