    Thanks for sharing this article on the New Monasticism. I feel like I’ve been shot at and missed.

    “a pig in a silk dress”? Is that supposed to be a bad thing? Miss Piggy would take exception to that!

    I think the church really needs to be on the guard against pigs in silk dresses. Anyway you cut it, pigs in dresses (silk or otherwise) are unnatural and therefore contrary to God’s plan. No offense to Miss Piggy, but she’s the porcine equivalent to Matthew Fox, Thomas Keating or John Shelby Spong. Beware!!!
