Week Two: The The Mystery of Simplicity

This week, we explored how monks, in an effort to copy Jesus way of life, took on a rule of “intentional poverty”. Not everyone is called to this kind of radical rule, but each of us should carefully compare our relationships with “stuff” to Jesus! Use this tool to practice!

  1. What would life look like if you made the changes to tool suggests?
  2. What changes would be hardest and why?
