Jesus has given us a path, a way. In Matthew 5:1-12 Jesus gives a series of blessings – The Beatitudes – which describe what we were made for and offer a vision for how we can live holy, healthy, and deeply. The Beatitudes are not a program but rather an invitation to join Jesus, step by step, deeper and deeper, into his divinely human life. This is only made possible because Jesus first journeyed towards us in his incarnation, and because the Spirit is powerfully present in us every day. We walk this path with Jesus only by God’s grace, power and love for us.
The Creative Way Down, based upon Jesus’ Beatitudes, is a resource designed to help us on this path.
