The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry, 27th Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, writes in his foreword to Receiving Jesus: The Way of Love, “…[H]ere I discovered anew the unconditional love of God that Jesus taught in an intimate, personal way.”
Through seven simple imperatives, readers can apply their love of God to daily life. The Rt. Rev. Mariann Edgar Budde, bishop of Washington, authors the book and shares her thoughts on how you can come to know—to receive—Jesus more deeply in practicing the Way of Love. Through the seven practices that have been put before us: to turn, to learn, to pray and to worship, to bless, to go, and to rest.
She writes, “The seven practices of the Way of Love are not, for the most part, dramatic gestures, but rather small steps we take whose impact will be felt over time.”
The first of the seven ways in which readers can focus their lives on Jesus begins with the phrase “to turn.” Budde writes, “Like responding to a hand extended to join someone on the dance floor, only we can decide to turn toward our experience of a spiritual encounter.”
She shares biblical stories, wisdom from the Christian tradition, and her own personal stories of spiritual growth.
If you, or someone you know, has an interest in strengthening your spiritual relationship or looking for everyday ways in which to make a positive change in your life you will benefit from reading this book. Receiving Jesus: The Way of Love is available for pre-order [or order, depending on timing; will get more information] from Church Publishing Incorporated today.
