RHYTHM OF LIFE

The people of St John’s and St Luke’s want to be a people who live their lives in step with Jesus, and we believe He has given us a great way to do this through His words in Matthew 11:29-30, where he invites us to,

 

‘Walk with me and work with me - watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.’  (Message Version)

Like others before us, we have called this way a ‘Rhythm of Life’ and we now have about 50 people actively involved in seeking to live by this shared rhythm. How we are trying to do this is outlined in the documents that can be accessed below, but in a nutshell, we are seeking to identify some steps or commitments we can each take to grow in our faith, and are then seeking to put these commitments into practice with the help of another person who we have called a ‘fellow traveller’, with whom we meet every couple of months or so.

The beauty of the this Rhythm of Life is that while it is a shared journey, it is also an individual journey, as no two people’s commitments will be the same.
