Everyone is invited to join our ‘Rhythm of Life’ venture.
Inspired by the work of religious communities and a Bible verse from the Gospel of Matthew, the initiative offers an opportunity for Christians to re-align and keep Christ at the centre of our daily lives, through practical commitments, opportunities for mutual support and recommended resources.
“As Christians, we believe Jesus should be at the heart of our rhythms of life, whatever our circumstances. This will have a far-reaching impact on our own wellbeing and the good of others – on our loving, living and learning.
I would like to invite you to join the diocesan ‘Rhythm of Life’ venture. This will involve individual commitments, accessing resources and mutual support. Some key areas will be given special attention: praying, encouraging, sharing, reflecting, celebrating, resting and creating.”
The Rt Revd Nick Baines, Bishop of Leeds
To get started, everyone is encouraged to read the quick start guide and invitation leaflet.
The journey can be done alone or together, with resources available for schools, children, young people, households and churches. Easy-to-use practical commitment cards, to help get you started, can also be downloaded.
The Rhythm of Life DLP page includes further details and lots of suggested resources for the seven areas participants can commit to, in order to keep Jesus at the heart of our daily rhythms.
Rhythm of Life material for Children, Young People and Families can be accessed here.
Information about the Rhythm of Life Lent Course can be found here.
“Walk with me and work with me - watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
Matthew 11:28-30 (The Message)
