Followers of the Way

In our journey as followers of Jesus Christ, do we know how to integrate and sustain discipleship in all areas of our life? Reed, a Guardian of the Community of Aidan and Hilda, answers by showing us a ‘way of life’ inspired by the ancient wisdom and practice of Celtic Christianity. Like following a map, we need help and direction to know where we are going. In each chapter he explains and discusses different practices to enable us to ‘set out on a lifelong journey to connect more deeply with God and to connect God with the whole of life.’ I particularly liked the chapters on healing and prayer. Thus, by following this way of life, ‘we must become better people, living better lives in a better world.’ What more could we wish to achieve? The book is warmly and personally written, particularly relevant today as we have so few answers to the many seemingly insurmountable problems in our lives. There is a great need to bring healing and wholeness to the whole of creation. I thoroughly recommend this enjoyable book.
