What can Monks teach us about living the Gospel?

The Lenten discipleship group, which begins Monday, February 20 at 7:00 PM, will read and discuss Christopher Jamison’s book “Finding Sanctuary”. This book grew out of an “experiment” sponsored by the BBC and Worth Abbey in England in 2005. The BBC wanted to see whether monastic spirituality has anything to offer contemporary English people, and Worth Abbey (Jamison is the Abbot—the leader—of the monastery) agreed to host 5 men for 40 days to see what might happen. The experience proved to be life-changing for all of them—the men and the Abbey.

Come join us and see what the monastic tradition can teach us about how to live the Gospel grounded more and more deeply in God. For more information or to register, please contact Paul Marvin (919-477-6974, pmarvin@nc.rr.com).
