Every day, each of us take another step along this path of life. We often face hardships, like roadblocks that make
travel difficult. Sometimes the way is clear, the road is broad and wide, and travel is effortless. But more often,
every mile causes more stress and puts us face-to-face with challenges we'd rather not encounter.
As we all know, there are two roads, one of which seldom taken. The wide, easy, paved road is not for us.
On this site, we want to help you find your way on the narrower of these two paths-- we want to guide you over
the mountainous trail, and guidance is necessary for it is often without guardrail or handholds.
"Decide for yourself: are you a tourist, looking only for a diversion? Or are you able to guide others yourself? Are you a seasoned trekker, easily blending in with your surroundings, or a novice traveller, often mistaken for a tourist yourself?"
Jesus asks us to follow him, but often it can be difficult to know how.
We hope this site will bring practical lessons of spiritual growth within your reach so you can better find your way.
Do You Want To Walk This Path?
The Pathway has been marked by trekkers before you, but the Journey is not easy. You must
climb dark mountains and cross dangerous rivers. Some parts of this road you must travel
at night. Danger spots have been clearly indicated but many have fallen and lost their souls to the chasm of darkness.
Do not take this trip lightly. It has the potential of great reward, but it is not for the
weak of heart.
You will gain new skills and inner strength you once thought impossible; Jesus is the source of all of these strengths,
and he is waiting to entrust them to you -- but only if you abandon all confidence in your own ability and place
complete trust in your Guide, our Lord.
Decide for yourself: are you a tourist, looking only for a diversion? Or are you able to guide others yourself?
Are you a seasoned trekker, easily blending in with your surroundings, or a novice traveller, often mistaken for
a tourist yourself?
We relate these four 'phases' of travelling; tourist, traveller, trekker, and tour guide, to the four phases of
discipleship, where Jesus asked his followers to "Come and See," "Come and Follow Me," "Come and Be With Me," and
"Come and Remain in Me."
Once you have found your place on the pathway, you may begin moving toward the goal of guiding others-- in other words,
discipling. As you journey, you will encounter hikers unable to move on, and you will find challenging trials which
slow you down as well. Our advice: stay close to your Guide, our Lord as you travel. He and your "discipler" will help
you find your way.
To help you get started, we have created a "pathway quiz," designed to help you decide where you are on the journey
of discipleship. Click here to try it out.
