The Four Pathways Jesus said that the greatest commandment is to love the Lord your God with all your mind, heart, strength and soul (see Mark 12:30 and Luke 10:27). Next Steps to Following Jesus includes activities to involve your family in all four. • The THINK pathway helps you to engage your brain to work things out. Connect with God by using your mind and fact-finding. • The FEEL pathway aids in building connections between the head and heart. Be with God in the silence and enjoy the wonders of creation. • The GET ACTIVE pathway encourages you to do something practical and to put words into action. See God at work as you get stuck in. • The CREATE pathway inspires you to make, bake and express your creativity. Experience God in the here and now.
