October 2019


More than 1,500 years ago, Benedict of Nursia wrote the Rule, a guide to living in community. Benedict’s Rule concentrated on hospitality, prayer, community life and how to create a balance among these different dimensions of life. The Rule proved to be timeless. It still has something to offer Christian women and men today.
