The City is my Monastery
Richard Carter swapped a life of simplicity with an Anglican religious order in the Solomon Islands for parish ministry in one of London's busiest churches, St Martin-in-the-Fields.
Seeing a need for monastic values in the centre of the city, he founded the Nazareth Community. Its members gather from everyday life to seek God in contemplation, to acknowledge their dependence on Godâ€™s grace and to learn to live openly and generously with all.
Part story, part spiritual meditation, The City is My Monastery offers spiritual wisdom for daily life rooted in the Nazareth Communityâ€™s seven guiding principles: Silence, Service, Scripture, Sacrament, Sharing, Sabbath Time and Staying.
