The Rector’s Study: Live a Life of Faith

How do we live a life of faith? Particularly in the midst of a world, of a society that feels like its tilting more off its axis than usual, it would be nice to have a guide, a roadmap, on how to get through a day, a year, a life with our faith intact, much less a faith that can grow, and can flourish. Luckily, there is such a guide, several in fact. Through the centuries of the church, members of the church have come up with rules to help in the life of faith. A rule of life provides a structure to guide us, both in good times and difficult ones.

At the Opening Eucharist of the General Convention, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry offered to the church a new rule of life for our times, in our branch of the Jesus Movement. He called it The Way of Love: Practices for a Jesus-Centered Life. You can watch and read Bishop Curry’s sermon. I hope you will.

The seven steps of the way of The Way of Love will be basis of Adult Christian Education this year. Beginning in November we will practice the work to Turn, Learn, Pray, Worship, Bless, Go, and Rest to better serve Jesus and live the life of the Kingdom of God. I hope you will join me on this journey beginning Sunday, November 11, 2018, at 9:30 am in the Education Building.

Church of the Redeemer

Church of the Redeemer: Worshiping God, living in community, and reaching out to the world around us. We are an Episcopal Church serving north King County and south Snohomish County. We welcome you be with us as we walk the way of Jesus.

Church of the Redeemer is at 6210 Northeast 181st Street in Kenmore, Washington. The campus is a short distance north of Bothell Way, near the Burke-Gilman Trail. The entrance looks like a gravel driveway. The campus is larger on the inside than it is on the outside. And we managed to hide a large building on the side of a hill that is not easily seen from the street.

The Episcopal Church welcomes you.
