accidental adj. happening by chance; an unforeseen or unexpected event.

monastic adj. relating to monasteries.

monasticism n. the monastic life or system of living.

the accidental monastic n. what happens when 2 people with 5 gloriously active and strong-willed kids start to experiment with the ideas of Christian community in the context of missions, discipleship, contemplative practices and Celtic Monasticism/ Christianity in their own living space when they thought they knew quite a lot and now realise they don’t know much at all.

Its also the story of being incarnational without being religious and sharing your faith to everyone around you without feeling awful, elitist, even slightly perfect and a little like a fraud.
