Punks and Monks

This is a very, very cool idea. Makes me wish I had been this cool when I was younger.

The Punx and Monx community is a small household of young creative people attempting to live in community. They all have their various individual activities, jobs, piercings, etc. but come together to share meals, art, activism, and prayer. They meet for vespers and compline, celebrate worship in their home on Sundays, and travel to the nearest cathedral to worship together once a month. It’s an experiment in forging an “urban monastic” lifestlye amongst progressive, artistic, tech-savvy young folks.

This makes me feel, like, 17% better about the world just knowing things like this intentional community exist. I will pray specifically for its success and that the idea spreads. God indeed is working in new ways.
