Someone once asked Jesus, "What's the most important commandment?" Jesus answered with the ancient words of the Jewish Shema, which Christians also call The Great Commandment. 

Jesus said, “The first is, ‘Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one; you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

This one sentence holds the key to understanding the four primary paths of each person's life. We find our purpose in directing each of these four areas towards loving God and loving other people. 

Walking these Four Paths is called "The Way." Jesus' disciples went on to become known as "followers of The Way." And every major faith tradition in the world is also built around helping people walk the Four Paths, often symbolized by this Sacred Symbol.

following The Way helps individuals and small groups learn more about these Four Paths, identifying where your current strengths and weaknesses are, and guides you through a universally recognized process of transformation often referred to as "The Hero's Journey."

following The Way draws on the wisdom of the wisest souls in Christianity and the world's other major faith traditions, recognizing it is God who has revealed The Way to people in every era and every culture.

 

The creator and chief guide for this journey is Rev. Rich Nelson, a poet, spiritual director, Episcopal priest, and fellow pilgrim on The Way.
