Walking the Way: Living the Life of Jesus Today is the United Reformed Church’s current focus on lifelong Christian discipleship and mission.
The Greek word for ‘disciple’ is mathetes, which literally means: ‘one who learns as they follow’.
Walking the Way explores what it means to follow actively, learn from – and eventually be transformed by – Jesus. It’s for anyone at any stage of the Christian journey – whoever you are, whatever your existing relationship with Jesus Christ and the Church, whatever your personal circumstances. It’s for you whether you have been following Jesus for five days or five decades.
In this short series of studies we will look at the adventures of those who first walked the Way with Jesus – the disciples. We will reflect upon how they were called to follow, how they responded, and how their lives were changed. We will look at what we mean by ‘the Way’ and explore the contrast between the Way walked by Jesus and his friends and the Way walked by followers of Jesus today.
Finally – because during Lent we traditionally examine our own Christian life and faith – we will suggest some ‘Holy Habits’ and look at ways of enriching our own lives as disciples of Jesus.
