    Adult Formation | Adult Forum

    Advent Adult Forum: Journeying the Way of Love For the season of Advent, Grace will use a new curriculum offered by The Episcopal Church, inspired by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s oft repeated message that love is the way. ‘Journeying the Way of Love’ offers four sessions to be explored as we await the coming of Christ by moving through the first two chapters of the Gospel of Luke. Luke’s gospel provides a pattern for understanding how we can live the Way of Love as individuals, as families and friends, as a community, and out in the world. An Advent calendar with daily spiritual practices will be available beginning next Sunday.
