A Missional Order
I received this link below from Doug. He thought the group might be interested in reading it.
Here are just a few excerpts from the link:
"In their experience an Order is best formed out of a more descriptive Rule rather than a set of written prescriptions around what should be done and when."
"The focus of the Order is the guarding of the ethos which is about the journey into God - everything else flows out of that most basic journey."
"The ethos, therefore, is this rhythm of the tides, the inward/outward journey. The ethos is to continually cultivate the rhythm. If we are trying to create an environment in which we see everything as a gift from God then the rhythm is essential - this focal recognition of the inner/outer journey going on in our lives continually."
