A Rule of Life is an orderly path of discipleship. The Anglican Way of following Jesus offers a brilliant Rule of Life to disciples of all ages—it is the Life of Christ Himself: as a prism can refract a beam of light into a rainbow spectrum, and as an architect shapes a room which in turn shapes its inhabitants, so the life of Christ, refracted into the spectrum of the Christian Year, shapes those who embrace a Prayer Book Spirituality. The best things in life tend to the real, rather than the virtual—and thus there are lots of lonely people in a hyper-connected world. Young Americans seem hungry for a Rule of Life that involves other people in real community—along with a faith to believe and a place to belong. Learn how God’s Old Testament calendar finds its way through the prism of Jesus into a colorful Prayer Book Spirituality which Young Anglicans can adopt as a meaningful, lifelong, catholic, and evangelical Rule of Life.
