Thursday Afternoon Program

Living the Way of Love provides 40 days of reflection and prayer using 7 Jesus-inspired practices
(Turn, Learn, Pray, Worship, Bless, Go, Rest).

Thursdays, 12:00-1:00 pm
March 10-April 14

Available on Amazon
or via Bookshop.org

Living the Way of Love offers forty brief reflections about the seven Jesus-centered practices (Turn, Learn, Pray, Worship, Bless, Go, Rest) identified by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry in “The Way of Love” initiative. Sullivan tells stories from her own and others’ experiences as a starting point for discussion about how to seek and find a deeper connection to God. Rotating through each practice so that each is covered once a week, going deeper into the practice throughout the forty days, each reflection ends with questions designed to spur further discussion and assist readers in making the practices their own. Perfect for using as a Lenten devotional or at any time of the year, the book includes a guide for creating a personal rule of life, and a downloadable Facilitator’s Guide.


Monday Night Program

Writing to God: 40 Days of Praying with My Pen contains thematic prompts and scripture readings to encourage writing our prayers to God.

Mondays, 7:00-8:00 pm
March 7-April 11

Available on Amazon
or via Bookshop.org

Writing to God is a Lenten devotional tool, providing forty-seven insightful prayers for personal reflection and an equal number of scripturally-based writing prompts to guide readers/writers in their own praying. Each prayer draws its readers into a moment of meditation, even as it sets an example for the accompanying prompt. Paired together, these prayers and writing prompts offer daily devotions for the Lenten season, including Sundays and Holy Week.
