The Summer Reading Club will be on Wednesday evenings, beginning July 10rd, from 7:00pm - 8:30pm at Legacy Church.  We will meet through the end of July.

We are reading The Rule of Saint Benedict by Benedict of Nursia with contemporary paraphrase by Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove. 

"Listen, my child. I urge you to incline the ear of your heart to the firm foundation of the master's wisdom (what I've learned, I'm now sharing with you). This is guidance from a spiritual father who loves you, the kind of counsel that, when embraced, shapes your entire life. Listening is challenging but crucial work. It opens us up to the God we've ignored by only heeding ourselves. If you're ready to break free from your self-obsession, this message is for you: listening equips you with the best tools to serve the true Master, Christ the Lord."

These are the opening words of Benedict’s Rule as paraphrased by Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove in his essential, contemporary interpretation. This edition includes the complete text of the Rule, a comprehensive introduction by Jonathan, and detailed explanatory notes to clarify difficult passages. The result is a revived classic that will invigorate any modern expression of religious community.

Cost is $10 and includes the book.  Childcare will not be available.
