The Rule of God, the Rule of Benedict, and your Rule of Life

Essays and notes by Daniel Paul Richards on the Rule of Benedict and life.  As an Episcopal priest, pastor, and dean or a husband, father, and friend, the Rule of Benedict has a great deal to say about how we live and relate to life.

These essays and notes are directed at leaders and pastors.  Finding a way to order a life that has so many facets has been a struggle, honestly.  The Rule has given me a way to order my priorities and time so that I can just as honestly claim that stability and transformation are both growing in my world and in me.
