How this ministry came about:

Over the years in my Christian pilgrimage I was blessed with opportunities to serve and interact in interdenominational and ecumenical settings. And in the midst of ministry, I had the privilege of accompanying believers in different developmental stages and in a variety of circumstances in their life journey. I began to recognize the tendency in many of us to dichotomize between the secular and sacred, leading to a rather fragmented and compartmentalized life.

In the process of learning to live more integrally and authentically, I explored spiritual practices and perspectives that informed, transformed, and formed a faith that seek to experience God and His truth in the daily ordinary mundane situations and moments of life. I began to move beyond the focus on right belief, right practice, and right behaviour. I believe holistic spirituality embraces the heart, mind, will and soul (to love God with all our heart, mind, will and soul, and to love our neighbour as ourselves – Mark 12:30-31).

While we are uniquely different with different preferences, and we need to recognize and affirm that, the invitation is to love God and others with the means of grace intellectually or cognitively, emotionally or affectively, volitionally or intentionally, and devotionally or whole heartedly. A healthy spirituality acknowledges a “both-and” perspective of knowing about God and knowing God, of both doing and being, verbal and listening prayer, conservative and creative, and the concrete tangible with the mystical mystery. Such postures of openness and humility moved me out from the pattern of suspicion, exclusiveness and judgementalism in my interaction with others. While I believe God has revealed to us that One Path[1] to eternal life[2], He has also generously provided many ways of journeying this path.

As I study both the scripture and our Christian history, I discovered the tremendous richness of our spiritual heritage that God has entrusted to us for living as Disciples of Christ. My passion is to facilitate and share these treasures that can position us in a place where the Holy Spirit can enable and empower the realisation of an abundant and full life (John 10:10, Col. 2:9-10).

Main services of One Path include:

Conducting workshops and courses in the area of Pastoral Care and Spiritual Formation; conducting Spiritual and Guided Silent Retreat; providing Pastoral Counselling and Spiritual Direction (Guidance).

One Path

One Path expresses the oneness that we share in Christ so that we become the transforming presence of Christ (we are One Body in Christ, but many parts or members of it – 1 Cor. 12:12-15). One Path is not about uniformity nor a singular pathway but rather about the singleness of heart and integrated wholeness to and in Christ, moving toward unity and harmony in variety. There is no one particular spirituality or practise better or superior than another. They are unique and complementary. Our motivation is love in response to Love, and our goal or desire is to be one with Christ. If you abide in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit (John 15:5b). Abiding is an image for union with Christ. As Paul puts it, “it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me” Gal. 2:20. We are “participants in the divine nature” 2 Peter 1:4 “… but you are not in the flesh, you are in the Spirit, since the Spirit of God dwells in you” Rom 8:9. You are all sons and daughters of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ (Gal. 3:24-29).

To this end, One Path seeks to nurture our identity through the ‘One Thing’ spirituality framework of:

One thing I ask / desire (spirituality of Being) – Psalm 27:4

One thing is necessary (spirituality of Devotion) – Luke 10:42

One thing you lack (spirituality of Relinquishment / surrender) – Mark 10:21

One thing I do (spirituality of Passion) – Philippians 3:13

One thing you must not forget (spirituality of Remembrance) – 2 Peter 3:8
