Product Description

We live in a time of great division in the world; people in the pews are at odds with one another over differing politics and doctrinal beliefs. Is there an answer to the conflicts that divide us - both in the church and in the outside world?

In the study, Our Purpose is Love, author David N. Field contends that love is the answer to the conflicts that polarize us; but what does love even mean and what does it look like?  In this eight- or nine-session study, he presents a Wesleyan vision of the church as the embodiment of God's love in the world and explores the implications of this vision for our life together.

 

The Leader Guide contains session plans and leader helps to facilitate an eight-week study based on the book, Our Purpose is Love by David N. Field.

Publisher's Description

What does it mean to love God and neighbor today, when things so often feel divided and in conflict?

In Our Purpose Is Love, author David Field challenges us to recognize and reclaim love as the center of our identity and purpose as the church. Field presents a Wesleyan vision of the church as the embodiment of God’s love in the world and explores the implications of this vision for our life together. In this vision, the church is where we become creatures of love, learning to love God and neighbor ever more completely and authentically through the means of God’s grace. As a result, we bear witness to the world by reflecting God’s love more and more perfectly in the way we treat others and order our common life. With a special focus on the importance of unity for the church’s witness, Field invites us to consider the ways in which embodying God’s love can and should influence
how we live as individuals and as communities of faith, calling us to reclaim and recommit to love as the center of who we are.

This Leader Guide includes leader helps and complete session plans for facilitating an eight-week small group study using Our Purpose Is Love: The Wesleyan Way to Be the Church, by David N. Field.
