There’s a new category tag on this blog and it’s called “Rule of Life”. Each posting I offer that will help equip people for developing the disciplines to sustain and enliven their faith will be tagged “rule of life”. For those interested the the “why” of rule of life, I’ll suggest listening to the teaching from my church on February 21st, 2010.
I’ll open this category with two things:
1. Resource – for a quick overview of what a rule of life is, and it’s significance, I’ll refer you to this link. Bethany’s rule of life booklet will soon available on this website as well. Check back.2. If you have questions or comments about ‘rule of life’ as you begin this journey, please post them on this entry, and I’ll work to respond to them, both here online, and in the equipping we offer for spiritual disciplines and discipleship at Bethany Community Church.
At a time approaching spiritual burnout, I discovered the ‘rule of life’ concept over a decade ago, and have found the practices contained therein to be life giving, rather than a choking constraint. I hope you’ll join us in this journey, not by talking about rule of life or studying it – but by actually developing your own rule of life. This morning, as I sat under the redwood tree in silence, and then prayed, I was grateful for these practices that bring integration and wholeness to my life. Let the adventure begin.
