About

Hi, I’m Rachaelprofilepicture Lopez.

 

I’m 30-years old.

Melbourne coffee snob.

I do writing, speaking & projects based around my working life purpose:

To encourage the church to be ‘a live tradition extends in both directions of time’.

Lewis Hyde wrote that last bit (but he was talking about art).

I love old and new, whether it be worship songs, prayers, writings or heroes of the faith.

For me, new-monasticism is where old and new come together. How can we carry on the charisms (gifts) of monasticism to a new generation?

Even bigger than this: How can we appreciate the treasures which span 2000 years of history and from across all cultures and denominations today?

These are the sorts of things I’ll be writing about.
