We will gather up our intention as a community to be very practical in this retreat. We will define the ancient term “rule of life”, and unpack the “how” and “why” of crafting a sacred rhythm of living. Opportunity will be provided to personally reflect on the practices, places, and people that nourish your life in God. We will explore creative and unique ways to craft our own rule of life based on a rhythm of those practices, places, and people that nourish our life in God. In addition, we will consider how our rule of life influences not only our life with God, but how we show up to our ordinary days and how we experience our professional life. We’ll have fun with it! This retreat is for those that are new to crafting a rule of life, as well as those folks that are quite familiar with the concept.
