This six-week series provides the opportunity to observe and to reflect on the ways in which the Divine Life expresses itself in and through us; individually and in our faith communities, as well as in the world around us.  Each week will explore the Anglican Marks of Mission (Tell, Teach, Tend, Transform and Treasure) through videos, questions and exercises so we can speak more clearly and act truthfully, motivated always by hearts marked by God’s love.

The Marks of Love are not simply a list of tasks to be checked off one after the other; they are signs that our life is rooted and grounded in the Being of God. The Brothers of SSJE will draw on their own monastic spirituality to help us balance action with contemplation, so that our words and deeds proceed from the deepest places of our hearts, where God dwells.  The resource encourages us to reflect on how we should live, not what we should do.

This series is designed for use by individuals or small groups. In small groups, facilitators will guide the growing process as participants discuss and learn together. For individuals, daily videos and reflections will lead them through a similar process. Ultimately participants will learn to offer themselves, body and soul, to God’s Mission, and to live for God’s glory. Materials and videos are free online and as downloads.

  1. I am definitely interested this sounds like it will be a great series I am working through Growing a rule of life late I might add but I have found it rewarding and helpful.

  2. Sounds like a wonderful opportunity to refocus – to really try loving as the center of living. Probably hard to stick to, but really worth trying.
    Thank you for your many offerings of love.

  3. Although I am living in Colorado I am very interested in this series. As I get older I realize I need to work harder on recognizing God’s presence my life.

    Thank you for the opportunity.

  4. Thank you.

    One of the monastic wisdom series was on Time. I wanted to revisit that teaching and have had difficulty finding access to it on the webpage. Is there a simple way to access it?

    Thank you for your continuing ministry, Jonathan

  5. The last two Lenten series were rich and thoughtful as to affect me all year through. “Time” raised an everlasting awareness in me, and “Growing” my rule of life gave me more clarity on change that was possible. Actually small steps in one view, but hugely important for me (and those around me.)
