Christine’s Reflection “Living Monasticism” Featured in Matter of Spirit

The wonderful folks at the Intercommunity Peace and Justice Center in Seattle chose the theme of “New Monasticism” for their winter issue of Matter of Spirit. I am delighted to have my reflection “Living Monasticism” featured on the front page.

You can find my reflection as well as the whole issue here>>

There is also an audio version for download narrated by someone else.
