The Way of Jesus

This is a guide to spiritual practices during Lent, prepared by our rector, Victoria. This booklet contains three Spirit-inspired writings: the Vow of Nonviolence from Pax Christi, the Sermon on the Mount from the New Revised Standard Version of the Bible and the Prayer of St. Francis from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer.
