Transcript of Video:

Over the course of this week we’ve introduced the idea of a Rule of Life and we’ve used the metaphor of a garden or a garden plot to think about our lives and think about the kind of plants that we want to encourage the growth of in these garden plots and perhaps also the kind of weeds that we might want to take out. So how can we make this garden plot flourish? How can we make it abundant and fruitful?

So at the end of this week you have a chance to look back over the week. We’ve talked about what a Rule of Life is and we’ve looked at some different kinds of Rule of Life. What are the ideas that have kind of stuck in your mind? What has grabbed your attention? And what are some of the suggestions or ideas or images or metaphors that have seemed useful to you? So gather them up now and think in terms of gathering these as “seeds” and putting them in a packet and you’re going to sow them in the weeks to come as we go through the process of developing this garden plot.
