Grow us in relationship with you

The Way of Jesus

With this series we are exploring what it means to follow the way of Jesus in the 21st Century.  In the gospels, when Jesus called his disciples to follow him, it meant to seek a radically new way of living, one that seeks to   transform our own spiritual health, and that of the world around us.  Throughout all of the Bible, the people of God are called to invest in that relationship, and throughout the last 2000 years of church history, men and women, young and old, have embraced that invitation of Jesus to move beyond the surface of life and to explore the depths of the spiritual life God calls us to.  The earliest followers of Jesus called this ‘The way’. 

During this series we will get the chance to explore ways in which the Bible calls us to develop our relationship with God, to transform our perspectives on who he is and who he has called us to be, and to attend to the spiritual health of our lives.  We will explore spiritual disciplines and practices that are available for followers of Jesus of any age or spiritual maturity, and you will be invited to consider some that might be new and challenging to you.  Leo Tolstoy once said that “Everybody thinks of changing humanity and nobody thinks of changing themselves.”  Let us take seriously the invitation of Jesus to come and follow him, to be both transformed by him and transformers of the world around us, as we seek to become followers of his way. 

Each week we have a card which offers practical advice and suggestions about how we may explore spiritual life in more depth during the week.
