WAYMARKS

 
 
  1. The Waymarks page is still being developed but this will give you an idea of what it is about.

  2. The aim is an online community who :   

  3. share a common allegiance to living the way of Christ’s teaching in the Sermon on the Mount,

  4. commit to praying for one another using a simple daily office, and

  5. support one another spiritually by sharing experiences of ‘the way’ in an on-line blog.

  6. If you are interested in exploring this idea please get in touch at waymark@me.com

 “Stand at the crossroads and look;

  ask for the ancient paths,

   ask where the good way is, and  

   walk in it,

  and you will find rest for your  

   souls . . .






Go in through the narrow gate.

The gate to destruction is wide, and the road that leads there is easy to follow. A lot of people go through that gate. But the gate to life is very narrow.

The road that leads there is so hard to follow that only a few people find it.

Mat 7 : 13-14 (from the Sermon on the Mount)

'The renewal of the church  will come from a new type of monasticism,

which only has in common with the old an uncompromising allegiance to the Sermon on the Mount.  It is high time men and women banded together to do this’

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, in a letter to his brother

. . . Yet my people have forgotten me; they burn incense to worthless idols,

Which cause them stumble as they tread the ancient ways,

And they take to byways and unmade roads.

Set up waymarks; put up guideposts.

Mark well the way home,

It is the same road by which you left. Come back again . . .  come back. How long will you waver . . 

God will create a new thing in this land.

Jer 6:16; 18:15; 31:21-22
