Monastic Wisdom for Everyday Living
An archive of sermons, workshops, and teachings that seek to distill the collective wisdom of the past
and offer practical counsel for living in today’s world.
For the five Tuesdays of Lent, we are offering a preaching series on the challenges and rewards of living by a rule of life.
