Who am I? I’m a speaker and writer, a people-person and a shepherd and I do small groups and personal prayer ministry. I also have a call (and an ordination – Baptist Union accreditation) to lead churches and my preferred way of doing it is to emphasise “equipping the saints for works of service” Ephesians 4:12. That’s about recognising the gifts of others and helping them to grow and become confident in them.
This site brings together posts from some individual blogs which are aimed at people at different stages on the journey of Christian faith – what Jesus called “the Way”.
Jesus talked a lot about the Way and in particular He said “I am the Way”. The early church were not at first known as Christians but known as followers of the Way. I am seeking to build up people who are exploring the Way, those who are walking on the Way with some confidence, and those sensing that their call is to show the Way to others and encourage them in it.
Think of it as one walk – we’re all on the journey – with three different routes and I’m your coach. Or if you’re familiar with skiing, I’m the guide who knows the slopes and you’ll either want to go on the Blue Run (exploring gently), or the Red Run (for more confident skiers) or perhaps you are up for heading out on the Black Run. These are the more devotional-style posts at different levels of challenge.
Then there’s a site about living as a disciple of Jesus and seeking to make disciples of others with its title taken from one of the very main things Jesus said to do: Love God, Love Others. There’s some Celtic daily prayers and other declarations and helpful stuff on there as well.
If you like practical ‘how tos’ and posts about small groups and other kinds of tools, head over to Discipleship Workshop.
There are also longer articles which look at popular topics and questions which I’ll add from time to time.
Bless you as we journey together…
