Invitation

In the spiritual life you get an invitation, not an itinerary. Jesus is inviting us into journey with no end, yet dotted with infinite destinations of joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control. A journey that leads to liberation from the petty, small, domain of self, into the wild, free, spaciousness of God's realm. Whosoever will may come is the invitation, anyone can walk in this way. In fact, that was the original name for the movement of Christ on earth, the Way. Names are important, even prophetic. Christianity is not a set of teachings to agree with or revere, Christianity is a path we journey on. In it’s deepest and most significant sense, it is a way of life.
