The Way

The Way: Walking in the Footprints of Jesus

by Adam Hamilton

“Using historical information, archaeological data, and stories of the faith, Hamilton follows in the footsteps of Jesus from his baptism to the temptations to the heart of his ministry, including the people he loved, the  parables he taught, the enemies he made, and the healing he brought.” - from

Join your friends and church family at Shady Grove UMC in a study that retraces the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. In Lent and Easter of 2017, we experienced the passion of Christ suffering and crucifixion in a church-wide study of 24 Hours That Changed the World by Adam Hamilton. This year we will again offer multiple meeting times throughout the week to discuss the weekly readings and watch the engaging videos of Hamilton in the Holy Land, walking in the steps of Christ. The Way: 40 Days of Reflection is a daily devotional Hamilton wrote to further enhance your Lenten experience. Why give something up for Lent? Why not try something new?
