about Rich

following The Way® is the spiritual formation project of Rev. Rich Nelson, an Episcopal priest, spiritual director, and fellow pilgrim on The Way.


Rich seeks to live a life deeply formed, informed, and transformed by the incredible power of the Four Paths (known in various faith traditions as the Shema, the Five Pillars, the Eightfold Path, or the Great Commandment) that lead us to loving God and others with all our Heart, Soul, Mind and Strength. 


We simply call it The Way.
