Following a pattern.

Following a knitting pattern.

“Sometimes I wonder about modern patterns.  I wonder whether, back when knitters devised their own, they didn’t learn more about knitting.  Truly, to knit a sock without a pattern you need a really, really good understanding of how knitting works.  It seems to me that having all the information handed to us at every turn means we don’t really  need to think too much.” (from Meditations For Women Who Knit Too Much by Stephanie Pearl McPhee)

There is a ” method in Methodism” which is referred to as 3 Simple Rules (doing good, doing no harm and staying in love with God).  These rules might be considered a basic pattern for practicing faith.

How might your understanding of this method enable you to grow deeper in your faith?
