A Monk's Meal
Last night we had a Monk's Meal at home. It was a tomato based soup with carrots, celery and lentils. This was served with dried toast. This was part of my children's education for the day. They learned that Monks in a certain area of Britain do not consume any thing from four legged animals. So they could not have butter on the bread. Also, you are to eat in silence while listening to the holy scriptures being read. So we popped in a tape of Revelation chapter 17 and ate in silence ----- which was a huge accomplishment for an 8 year old, 6 year old, 4 year old, and a 1 year old. Yes, even the one year old was silent for the entire meal. Monasticism ----- what will be next in our wonderful world of homeschooling?
