Crafting a Rule of Life

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Wednesday 9/22/2021 at 4 PM ET

The Scriptures are replete with examples of God’s people fulfilling their unique mission, from Noah to Ruth to David to Jesus and his disciples. Listening to God, noticing his invitations, acknowledging his presence, and attending to his voice is where it all begins. All of us abide by an unwritten rule of life, but very few are asking God to help clarify it on a regular basis. In this workshop we’ll unpack the process.

"This year has been a major year of transition for my family as well as my parents -- yet another year in what seems like a long journey of coming to terms with a painful past. Steve's teaching on developing a rule of life helped clarify my relational priorities. I felt God calling me to clear the clutter in my heart, mind and soul and trust him as a "God of clarity and not confusion" so that I can become a "man of love" -- especially for my wife and children. Thank you! "

"The spirit of freedom that undergirded the entire workshop [was most helpful]. This could easily have become something that would've made me feel emotionally/personally claustrophobic, or that came down with rigid structure and made me feel like a failure, but instead you encased it with grace and invited me into it as a joyful tool. Looking at it this way, I discovered that the way God made me (more free-flowing in my daily structure...or lack, thereof!) is actually already WORKING! So many of these things are areas I'm seeing a lot of growth in over the last year or two as I've given myself the freedom to be who I am and pursue more of the things I've characteristically thought didn't fit with a spiritual life (at least in the church culture I came from) art, creativity, freedom, questions, desires, etc. Just seeing that in today's session was very life-giving and affirming for me. Thank you for that gentle and gracious approach."

"I have tried for a decade to have a rule of life. It just hasn't worked. I think you simplified it and "de-mystified" it for me. I've seen other examples, but having David explain his and his WHY with it really motivated me to re-enter into this process. It was another FABULOUS 0ffering from LTI!!! Thank you so very much!"

"This has got me thinking about what my relational capacity is, and the need to examine the sustainability of my current involvements and connections, and to be prayerful about my engagements or the ways I extend myself, moving forward"

"I've been wanting to understand this for a long time. I feel like I have a good understanding of how to start into this journey now of crafting a rule of life with the Holy Spirit guiding me. I'm excited to incorporate this practice as a vital spiritual tool into my life."

"The teaching was very useful; I've been through Steve's book and for whatever reason, the teaching in real time gave me some nuances and perspectives that helped me through my block. The reflection question about where we've met with the Lord and known him was challenging; it was a great question but I could not come up with specifics in the time frame we had. I enjoyed meeting another member of the class. And I've continued to think about that really it was quite helpful."
