In this episode, Bishop Curry talks to Shane Claiborne, founder of the Simple Way and co-founder of Red Letter Christians, about the importance of spending time in the words of Jesus and allowing them to directly inform our thinking and actions. The two discuss what it means to pay particular attention to the “red letters” of the Bible – those in which Jesus is directly teaching and guiding us, even now.
To learn on the Way of Love is to reflect on Scripture each day, especially on Jesus’ life and teachings. In a world that is only too eager to use scripture to justify cruelty, judgmentalism, and party politics, we as Christians are called to keep re-centering our lives and minds on our Lord’s words– to help bring about God’s dream for ourselves, our societies, and the whole world.
