Lost in the woods of Wonderland, Alice meets the Cheshire Cat. She’s come to a fork in the path and asks, “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?” The Cat replied, “That depends a good deal on where you want to get too.” She said, “I don’t much care where.” The Cat replied, “Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.”
If you are like me, after deciding where to go, one of the first things I do is load the destination into Google Maps. For someone that doesn’t like to ask for directions, GPS is an invaluable tool. And the best part, if I miss a turn, (when I miss a turn) it patiently re-routes me back on track. It matters which way we go!
The first part of our mission statement here at Heritage is to make Disciples. Jesus marked the destination of discipleship into the GPS of our souls.
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” (Luke 10)
“The destination for every disciple’s path is a life completely centered in loving God, and loving others, a life in which the love of God that became flesh in Jesus becomes flesh in us.” James Harnish – A Disciples Path
“A Disciples Path” gives us the road map to discipleship. The challenge is to respond to Jesus invitation to “Follow me.” You can respond by joining one of the Disciples Path small groups this fall. You can find more information here, and signup online here:
