William Funderburk expresses his personal rule of life around a key word, “attentiveness” and then expresses it via the medium of poetry with key Scriptures. Take a look at this unique design for a rule of life. He will be adding more “activist” panels as he continues to craft his personal rule of life in the coming days.
Season Eight: Discerning Our Personal Rule of Life
Host: Steve Macchia | Guest: Tom Griffith
In season eight, Steve Macchia welcomes guest Tom Griffith to the podcast to discuss discerning God Our Personal Rule of Life in the following episodes:
Introduction • Framing • Forming • Fulfilling • Process and Examples
Steven Petersheim’s Rule of Life is built around prayers…one daily breath prayer “God be in My Head” and a second weekly self-reflection prayer “Being an Instrument of His Peace” – the ancient and modern combined so beautifully and graciously. His spiritual routines and worship practices highlight this brother’s desire to be fully devoted to the Lord. Kudos to Steven and thank you for being a godly role model to so many in your orbit of influence.
Heidi Duncan offers a very creative approach to crafting a personal rule of life. With “music of the spheres” as her theme, each ring concentrically displayed outlines her daily, weekly, monthly, seasonal and annual priorities. A background in costuming on Broadway helped her know how to use safety pins to hold it together and hang perfectly! Kudos, Heidi!
“Practicing the Rule” based on John 1: 3-5 by Matt Chandler from The Village Church in Texas (11.17.19)
“Developing a Rule of Life” based on John 15: 1-8 by John Mark Comer from Bridgetown Church in Portland, OR (11.3.19)
James Holt crafted his personal rule of life on a baseball. Very creative! Here he is holding his rule of life prayerfully and gratefully. Keep your rule of life fresh and inviting, renewing and restorative, creative and life-transforming!
Kimberly Fick’s Rule of Life is creatively designed with one main theme: “God loves you and that will never change” and four key priorities: Love God; Love Others; Sabbath Rest; Daily Examen (with specific reminders of each). Simple and beautiful and hangs in her living room as a daily reminder to she and her family. Well done, Kim!
Two ministry friends and pastor’s wives, Julie Meissner and Cindy Wu, who share similar challenges and demands, are encouraging each other as they craft their rule of life. They both aim to live less stressed, more joy-filled lives and find Crafting A Rule of Life a wonderful resource to help guide their steps during this season of life.
