Whether we are conscious of them or not, we all have rules (rhythms and rituals) for living. The real questions, then, are whether we are conscious of the rules by which we are living, and whether our rules are lifting us up to richer, fuller life. Drawing upon materials he prepared for and shared through the Upper Room-sponsored Spirit Journey retreat in the Fall of 2016, Jim Reiter introduces students to Benedict and his ancient rule, and unpacks some immersion work he’s done in various monastic communities. We’ll have an eye to the ways that the ancient Rule of Benedict can inform and transform our life as disciples and as a church. More importantly, we will focus on the nature of rules for living (such as Benedict’s and Wesley’s) and the basics of our formulating such a “sacred rhythm” for our own life and living.
