Readers’ Heaven gathers quarterly for a lay-led discussion of their latest read. Our next book is “Love is the Way” by Bishop Michael Curry, which we will discuss on Thursday, January 27 at 7:00pm on Zoom. There is no in-person option this quarter. Here is a description of the book:
We were created by love, for love, to love, and to be loved. And we are at our best when we live in God’s love. And I believe deep down, it’s what we all want. We don’t want hatred. We don’t want the abyss. We want Beloved Community. The way of love is how to live it.
When Prince Harry married Meghan Markle in 2018, two billion people watched around the world. For one brief moment, love recreated the cosmos, the world came together. And Bishop Michael Curry preached his revolutionary sermon on the power of love.
In this book, Bishop Curry shares his deep faith that characterized that cultural moment: the way of love. It is the underappreciated, all-but-forgotten understanding of agape, the love that uplifts, liberates, and changes the world. Though some might believe the world has to be the same, this way has the power to change things for the better. In his warm and accessible style, Bishop Curry holds out the hope of love in troubling times.
