Ninefold Path is a church resource to help us explore the beatitudes (found in Matthew, chapter 5). It was developed by Mark Scandrette, with Danielle Welch, and a global collective of NINE BEATS practitioners, and piloted in churches, prisons, schools and community spaces in UK, USA, South Australia, South Asia, and East Africa.
“The Ninefold Path refined my perception of Jesus. The way of Jesus seems more practical to me now because I have learned some easy-to-use tools. I wish I’d known earlier how awesome this really is.” – Rhanee Tsetsakos
Designed for individual or group use, The Ninefold Path notebook is available in packs of 5 for just £15 per pack. Through a n easy-to-access approach, each beatitude (“beat”) is presented with a short invitation and reflection, with practical experiments to put the words of Jesus into action. A downloadable guide for leaders (‘Learning Lab Group Guide’) is free with every order of 3 packs or more. Physical copies can be purchased from the store.
“The combination of group and individual practice … has been a transformative experience for our community of faith.” – Rev Vince Anderson, Citylights Community, NYC
We have discovered that these practices impact our inner selves and our daily habits. They invite us to a way of trust, lament, humility, justice, compassion, right motive, peace-making, surrender, and radical love.
“The Ninefold Path connects to the most important parts of our lives— daring us to join in God’s activity in the world and to experience the flourishing that can happen in our relationships, in our lives and for others.” – Jesse Size
