My Rule of Life

Image: Chris Webb
My Rule of Life. Thought some of you might be interested to see it.

If you're having any trouble reading the handwriting on the photo, here's the text:

simplify
pray the psalms
meditate on the gospels
embrace silence
be present
live healthily
create margins
love

It's rooted in my understanding of the Gospels and the rest of the Bible, of wide reading in the Christian tradition, of (particularly) the Rule of St Benedict, which is the rule of the community to which I belong. Obviously, though, very much condensed!

These are the things I think really matter, the things that most help me walk well with Christ.

Of course, if you want to know how well I actually live this you need to talk to my wife and children, who are the world experts on me and have no illusions ...

And you? What are you living by?
