Lots of people commented on Old Monk’s journal entry that followed the national election. I’ve read all of them and they evoked some responses.
First, Old Monk wants to thank all of you who wrote a comment. It’s a small act of courage to own what you think and feel and say it to others. Because I believe we are in for hazardous four years, I, too, want to be honest about what I think a monastic stance requires in perilous times.
