Living in Community: A Day with St Benedict and his Rule - 11th November 2023 (Cookernup)
Among all the alternative Christian spiritualities, the Benedictine is possibly the most down to earth. The Rule is a disarmingly modest or gentle approach to spiritual guidance without being directed toward remote ideals, asceticism, or ardent conversion. It is a treasure trove of wisdom about how to live well together: the quality of everyday life, in families, workplaces and our institutions. But above all, it is a guide to finding God in all our labours.
At a working farm, we will explore how our daily rituals can become our rhythm of life. To engage with God, find acceptance in the fullness of life, and deepen our understanding of hospitality as a means of worship.
