LTI Crafting a Rule of Life Workshop

ruleoflife_banner.jpg

"Listen!" This is St. Benedict's opening word in his "Little Rule for Beginners." He offered a way of listening in a safe, faith-filled, community environment where believers learned to practice the disciplines of prayer, healthy relationships and good works. Benedict's rule was countercultural in an era of increasing secular and religious pressures. The word for rule, regula, meant "something to hang on to in the dark." Christians of all denominations today are looking to the ancient discipline of a Rule of Life to help guide and strengthen their sense of living in Christ and participating in a wider community.

This workshop on Dec 7 from 9am - 12 pm at Access will include information about the history and purpose of a Rule of Life, and provide participants with the opportunity to reflect on and begin to draft a Personal Rule of Life.

You are invited to join a 4-week learning group exploring the global refugee crisis and a biblical response to what is considered the greatest humanitarian crisis of our time.

This group will be led by Cindy Wu, who works for houston welcomes refugees and Camille Frey, who works for Amanaah Refugee Services. We'll learn facts about the refugee crisis and reflect on God’s heart for the stranger.

Our text will be a workbook written by Cindy, A Better Country: Embracing the Refugees in Our Midst, which you can purchase at our table after church or buy off Amazon.com. Meetings will be held Tuesday evenings at Access, beginning June 4 and ending July 2. We hope you will join us!

We ask that all who register commit to at least 3 of the 4 meetings.
