Finding the Way.

The early Christians were called followers of the Way. (Acts of the Apostles)

 

Helen Wodehouse (1880-1964), British philosopher and the first woman to hold a professorship at Bristol University wrote these words:

 

“We think we must climb to a certain height of goodness before we can reach God. But he says not “At the end of the way you may find me”; He says “I am the Way; I am the road under your feet, the road that begins just as low down as you happen to be.” If we are in a hole the Way begins in the hole. The moment we turn to walk in the Way, we are walking in God. The moment we set our face in the same direction as His, we are walking with God.”
