Benedict for Everyone: Reading the Rule of Benedict in the Modern World
Six Weekly Sessions, beginning February 10, 2024
1:00-2:30 PM (Pacific Time)
In this six-part series, participants will explore how people who do not belong to monasteries can read the Rule of Benedict and apply it to their life in the “world.” Benedict’s “rule” is a guidebook for seeking a life centered on God and is easily adaptable to modern people. Together we will learn how to understand and apply Benedict’s transformative wisdom in our lives.
This will be challenging and interactive with discussion and practice. Each session will build on the previous one. Previous experience with the Rule is helpful but not necessary.
