Another Way

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of listening to Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove speak about his experience working with CPT in Iraq in 2003. If you are interested you may download the talk here. It is a fairly large mp3 file so you may want to save to your hard drive and listen to it locally.

Jonathan and his wife Leah are members of Rutba House here in Durham, NC. Rutba House is an “experiment in the new monasticism”. Jonathan has written a book; “To Baghdad and Beyond: How I Got Born Again in Babylon“. Along with other members of Rutba House, Jonathan has also contributed to the book School(s) for Conversion: 12 Marks of a New Monasticism. I have read neither of them so I am unable to comment directly, but having met Jonathan, I suspect they are quite interesting reads.

How easy it is to forget that there is good news of another way…
