There is a sort of new “ism” floating about modern day Christendom in the form of Protestant Monasticism. It is probably more accurate to refer to it as “Emergent Monasticism” since its adherents are mostly coming from Emergentism. What seems to be different from traditional monasticism are the vows to life long obedience and the traditional monastic orders. You can read more about this here.
But my question to you is this. Do you think there is warrant for monasticism? Or do you think it negates the idea of being in the world not of it?
