Bringing Holy Order to Busy Lives: How to Write a Rule of Life

Rev. Charles LaFond

Often we intend to do things such as rest or diet or exercise or prayer or the nurturing of friendships, but
life gets busy and our intentions become overwhelmed with life’s business. In this presentation, we will
explore the ancient tradition of using a “Rule of Life,” which can help you to identify areas of your life
which need more structure. By creating a small “rule,” you can bring order to the chaos which gets in the
way of your hopes, and honor that part of you which seeks intimacy with God.

No registration is necessary. Free-will offerings are greatly appreciated.

Charles LaFond is an Episcopal priest and the Advancement Director for Heading
Home, a social profit agency in Albuquerque seeking to make homelessness rare,
short-lived, and non-recurring. The author of four books and a Master Potter of 35
years, Charles lives in Albuquerque’s South Valley on an apple, peach, and alfalfa
farm with his black Lab “Kai.”

Meditative Writing Retreat @ Santa Maria de la Vid (Norbertine) Abbey
Oct 27 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Meditative Writing Retreat @ Santa Maria de la Vid (Norbertine) Abbey

In these challenging times in which we live, we may find it difficult to simply make it through the day, let alone practice letting life flow gracefully. But there is a way in which we can move gracefully through each day by letting go trustingly, letting be hopefully, and letting grow lovingly. In this meditative writing retreat, we will have an opportunity to explore how these practices enable us to live gracefully in each moment, by connecting with our own life experiences and recognizing what they have to teach us.

The offering for the retreat is $55.00, which includes lunch.
