Benedict's Way: Seeking Balance in an Unbalanced World

Tuesdays, 6-8pm, Parish Hall

In the bustle and busyness to modern life, many of us long for a greater sense of peace in our lives. Yet, if we are honest, what we really want is not peace, but balance. In his monastic Rule, the 5th century saint, Benedict of Nursia, offers monks and non-monks alike a path to greater balance, even as they seek a fuller sense of God. Though written nearly 1,500 years ago, the Rule of St. Benedict--"Benedict's Way"--continues to guide and nurture men and women--both inside and outside monasteries—who seek to live a Christ-centered life in a balance of work, study, and prayer.

During the season of Lent, Fr Terry will be leading a 5-week class aimed at exploring Benedict's Way as a tool to help Christians today to live together and grow in grace. This course will take place on Tuesday nights, beginning February 20. We will begin by gathering for a communal meal of soup or stew at 6pm, before launching into the presentation at 630pm. Join us as we explore this spiritually rich, yet very down to earth guide to living a balanced Christian life.
