Welcome to the Society of Saint John the Evangelist

Day Four – Everything Up for Grabs


day4Question
: A feature new to this version of the Rule is a whole chapter dedicated to the Society’s founders and the graces of tradition (3). Why was this important to include?

Br. Curtis Almquist: When we began the conversations about the Rule, we had no set agenda or any kind of imagined outcome. One of the things we did really well in the process was to give ourselves permission to think as widely as we possibly could. And with that, all kinds of things began to show themselves as important to us: the founders, the Beloved Disciple (2), personal friendships (42), rest and recreation (45),and maintaining our health and creativity (44), just to name a few.
