Jesus says to “love your enemy” and to “love your neighbor as yourself.” But how do you actually do that? And not just imagine you can do it? Just because we know Jesus said this, doesn’t mean who have the ability to love as he teaches us. So how do we love in this Way of Jesus? What is the Way to Love?
Join Rev. Rachel Sciretti and Rev. Dr. Michael Sciretti, Jr. as they explore these questions through the book The Way to Love by Anthony de Mello. Rachel and Michael will co-lead a month-long journey through this book, which has 31 short meditations on different teachings of Jesus related to the Way to Love. Although this study will be co-led by a married couple, this study is not about marriage. It is for anyone who wants to learn to love others fuller and freer.
From the publisher:
The Way To Love contains the final flowering of Anthony de Mello's thought, and in it he grapples with the ultimate question of love. In thirty-one meditations, he implores his readers with his usual pithiness to break through illusion, the great obstacle to love. "Love springs from awareness," de Mello insists, saying that it is only when we see others as they are that we can begin to really love. But not only must we seek to see others with clarity, we must examine ourselves without misconception. The task, however, is not easy. "The most painful act," de Mello says, "is the act of seeing. But in that act of seeing that love is born." Anthony De Mello was the director of the Sadhana Institute of Pastoral Counseling in Poona, India, and authored several books. The Way To Love is his last.
Participants should secure their own books.
A Zoom link will be sent to participants before the class.
