The intent of this course is to mine the riches of the monastic tradition that began with Benedict of Nursia 1500 years ago and to explore the ways in which it continues to nurture and deepen the lives of disciples of Jesus and the communities in which they live. With guidance from the Rule of Benedict and those who have sought to apply it to everyday life, the ways in which Benedict's legacy enhances our devotional practices, friendships, work, family life, churches, and communities will be explored. Lectures include:

  • Introduction
  • Why This Course?
  • Benedict and His Monks
  • The Times and Seasons of Life
  • Benedictine Vows
  • Bourbon Fudge, Books, and Bended Knees
  • Benedictine Virtues
  • The Monastary
  • The Abbot
  • Why Today's World Needs Another Benedict
