Urban Hermits - Fr Gregory - 07-06-2008

There is an excellent and interesting article in New York Magazine for January 13 2008 ? available at <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://nymag.com/guides/mindbody/2008/42818/">http://nymag.com/guides/mindbody/2008/42818/</a><!-- m -->\ - on ?urban hermits? in New York: men and women who seek to follow the hermit tradition, including that of the Desert fathers (and Mothers) of the ancient church, while living and working in a modern city. These modern urban hermits are Episcopalian (Anglican) ? it would be encouraging to read about Orthodox equivalents!
