An Invitation to Seek

Long ago, Anselm (1033-1109), Archbishop of Canterbury, prayed:

Teach me to seek you, and reveal yourself to me, when I seek you, for I cannot seek you, except you teach me, nor find you, except you reveal yourself. Let me seek you in longing, let me long for you in seeking; let me find you in love, and love you in finding.

To stir that desire to seek a relationship with God through Jesus Christ, we shall post here successive editions of The Way. This is a 4-page newspaper which goes out to 3,000 homes around Seventh Reformed Church, Grand Rapids, Michigan. Although published in the context of the locality of Grand Rapids North West and reflecting issues relevant to the day in which each edition went to press, the message of The Way is unchanging. Namely, that we may come to know God through Jesus Christ.

If, having considered the messages and testimonies of The Way, you are interested in seeking a relationship with God for yourself, then we invite you to follow through the successive tabs under “Beliefs.” They are intended to offer help for each stage of the journey to faith in Jesus Christ, and for the life of faith thereafter.

May God bless you as you consider these matters of ultimate importance. Take heart, for as the apostle Paul noted in Athens in the first century A.D., we may feel our way toward God and find him, for, actually, he is not far from each one of us (Acts 17:27).
