The Lay Community of Saint Benedict


Title: Paperback
Sale price$15.00


From its inception in 1971, the Worth Abbey Lay Community went from strength to strength - so much so that on 2003 the monastery encouraged it to become independent, to become The Lay Community of St Benedict. And so it did. This book uses archive material and the recollections of those involved to follow the journey of the original partnership and trace how lasting bonds have been formed. It shows how a living spirituality, drawn from the wisdom of St Benedict, took root among members of the community. (Although Benedict's Rule for communal living was written over 1,500 years ago, it remains a road map for co-operative and personal living - and not just for monk.) Today, The Lay Community of St Benedict has a thriving membership encompassing three generations. Its story is still unfolding, and the sequel to this book is being lived today through a shared life which has been renewed and grown through the Cover crisis.
