Welcome to the Society of Saint John the Evangelist

SSJE in The Way of Love

Presiding Bishop Curry recently invited the whole Church to take up what he calls “The Way of Love,” a series of practices that will help people to live Jesus-centered lives. “How can we together grow more deeply with Jesus Christ at the center of our lives,” Bishop Curry asks, “so we can bear witness to his way of love in and for the world?” His answer might not surprise Friends of SSJE. The answer is no less than keeping a Rule of Life!

“The deep roots of our Christian tradition may offer just such a path. For centuries, monastic communities have shaped their lives around rhythms and disciplines for following Jesus together. Such a pattern is known as a “Rule of Life.” . . .  The Way of Love: Practices for Jesus-Centered Life outlines a Rule for the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement.”

Turn. Learn. Pray. Worship. Bless. Go. Rest.

SSJE is delighted to make an appearance in the promotional video for “The Way of Love,” which you can watch below. We hope you’ll check out this wonderful program.
