Modern Monks

Edward sent me a link to this article on Christianity Today.
It's a really good little sermon on holiness in the modern/western church. The message isn't exactly new, but his summary is inspirational: if we're striving for holiness, we're missing the point; instead, we should strive for our sense of belonging to Christ through his body.
This is the kind of writing that makes me wonder if we might someday be able to recover what we lost when monasticism disappeared.
Time to go read Romans again.
