Come, join the conversation! All are welcome!
During these four weeks, we will look at the Christian tradition of monasticism with an eye to deepening our own spiritual lives. Even without visiting-or joining!-a monastery, the practices of monasticism offer a myriad of ways to live Christianly in the midst of ordinary life: ways to “pray without ceasing,” to welcome the stranger as Christ, and to walk humbly with God, among many others. From its beginnings in the Egyptian desert, through multiple reformations, and continuing to a 21st-century Protestant movement called “new monasticism,” monasticism has strengthened and encouraged Christians of every imaginable kind, in every imaginable place. Join us as we explore ways to incorporate these ancient ideas in our modern lives.
