simple clothing day

morning bell at the moment is drawing on the work that I'm doing on a book on how we might take the wisdom and practise of monastic spirituality into the everyday. I'm starting this week suggesting a simple clothing day, perhaps based on one colour - and let's see what that feels like...

Being highly disorganised and having a very limited wardrobe it wasn't easy finding matching clothes of one colour. I ended up in black which was a bit funereal but had the desired effect of making me more conscious of what I was wearing than I would otherwise have been.

Did you catch last week's discussion on the new monasticism (Beyond Belief on Radio 4)? If not it should still be available on listen again or to download as a podcast. It was very interesting to hear how the traditional features of the monastic life are being revisited and revised to meet the needs of the 21st century.
