Flirting With Monasticism
Finding God on Ancient PathsBook - 2006
This is the true story of Karen Sloan's breathlessly confusing and ultimately fulfilling year in the company of a Dominican novitiate. Flirting with Monasticism is a courtship of sorts: a young would-be pastor learning ancient prayers and practices from young would-be priests. As you enter into this story you'll gain a fresh appreciation for the many ways we pray, worship and serve, and a deeper understanding of our unfolding relationship with God and the people of God. This is a story of loving and letting go, of moving through novice dreams to a greater vision. Flirting with Monasticism gives us a new appreciation for how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ. Market/Audience Emergent church Young adults Features and Benefits Narrative exploration of monasticism.
