The Way of Jesus

Our life of faith is all about moving along the way of Jesus. This website is all about helping each other get “from here to there” along that way. Following Jesus develops like all human development. We see ourselves moving from earth to wind to fire to water in an ongoing, organic process of receiving and enjoying our new, true selves in Jesus.

If you are considering faith in Jesus or a new follower of Jesus, start in Earth. If you are new to Circle of Hope, you probably want to start in Wind. But everyone will find something for their journey in every section. God bless you all along the way!
