Jesus’ proclamation, ‘I am the way the truth and the life’ has often lost real meaning for the contemporary Church. It’s often simply a point of doctrine or a Christian cliché, superficial ‘God-talk,’ not a lived reality that shapes us. So it is critical to reread the earliest document we have of the Jesus story—Mark’s gospel, to understand how ‘the Way’ was actually described and what that means for the lived Christian journey today.
We will take a new and fresh reading of Mark’s gospel as not only history, but a story—the Jesus story—Christ’s own unique journey, but also remarkably a pattern of our own journey of faith. He is the Way and shows us the way, but what exactly does that look like? We will also read excerpts of fiction and non-fiction and discover how some men and women, early and contemporary, have understood ‘the Way,’ in their own experience and have had their way profoundly shaped. Finally we will watch a contemporary film that highlights the unique character of the Christian journey that will amuse us and challenge us to rethink how we live our own journeys.
