Lent 2016 – Grow a Rule of Life

This Lent, the Diocese of West Texas joins the Society of St. John the Evangelist and Virginia Theological Seminary with the Lenten series Growing a Rule of Life.

Living a balanced life requires growing and internalizing a whole set of new boundaries and rules, which may seem impossible in the face of our already overcrowded schedules. But just as stakes and lattices nurture the growth of young plants, so too can spiritual disciplines support the flourishing of our whole being.

This Lenten series will focus on God as the Chief Gardener of our souls and use a tool from monastic spirituality called a “Rule of Life” to explore and cultivate our relationships with God, Self, Others, and Creation.
