Monastery

Today the Phase 1 student ministers are heading for the monastery just outside Grahamstown. For once it is the people from Port Elizabeth who must travel, while I am nearby! I am looking forward to this. We will stay there two nights. I don't know what to expect, except that we have been told that there will be something about dreams . . .
Two challenges for me: 1. to see if I can continue with my discipline of running in a different place and a different routine; 2. to see if I can manage to promote my booklet without apologising for it. I am my own worst enemy sometimes!

My dad did his Theological studying at St Paul's College (it's had a name change recently) in Grahamstown. He used to talk about the monastery in the area and visited it a few times. I always found meeting “brothers” a really interesting experience. They were always more normal than I expected and yet different. “Sisters” even more so.
