A Bi-Monthly E-Newsletter of Benedictine Spirituality
Welcome to The Cyber Toolbox, the bi-monthly E-Newsletter that offers practical suggestions and ideas for bringing the teachings of St. Benedict alive in your daily life. Regular columns include Jane’s Featured Article and a Tool, a Book Recommendation, prayers or brief reflections from other writers and, new to the newsletter, a recipe article.
Until his passing in June 2013, my dear cat Randy wrote for the newsletter, too. Although he is no longer with us I have kept his writing on the website in Randy’s Corner. Randy’s thoughtfulness, observations and candor were much appreciated by newsletter readers.
The Cyber Toolbox is e-mailed bi-monthly to subscribers. Please use the subscription form on the right to start receiving the Cyber Toolbox in your inbox.
