New Monacticism

A conference in October gathered together leaders of ‘new monastic’ communities. In the write up it is noted that the term is not necessarily a helpful one but did detail something of the nature of these groups. The helpful descriptor being:
“Those gathered had a shared sense of vocation to develop contextual forms of missional community that have a praxis or lived experience approach to Christian discipleship, requiring a commitment to spiritual disciplines and practices, as a rhythm if life where everything becomes worship, requiring a whole of life approach to following the way of Christ based on the Gospels”
