Baptist Monk?

In yesterday’s post we discovered that BAPTIST Andrew Jones has an interesting post related to his decision to “found a monastery on the Orkney Islands in Scotland.” The result of this is, “Are you kidding, BAPTIST MONKS?”

As a Baptist, with monk leanings, I find myself struggling with the question, “What is a Baptist Monk?”

Jonathan Gardner, also a baptist, has also posted a beginning dialogue about
Baptist Monks. As a Baptist also, with monk leanings, what then is a Baptist monk. Tomorrow I hope to come to grips with a Baptist Monk Manifesto. For now, I just want to raise the question WHAT IS A BAPTIST MONK.

Today, I will be gone all day for a conference with all the other hospital chaplains in Tennessee. But if you have any ideas about What a Baptist Monk is then check back tomorrow.

I'm eagerly looking forward to the manifesto. I really do believe that we, and others (via their blogs and comments) should work together to get a form of words so that we work towards getting a Baptist Monastery with Baptist Monks up and running, online. Keep up the good work. Am prayin' for you. GBY. Jonathan
