Welcome to the Ghetto Monk

"Faith seeks understanding. I do not seek to understand that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand." - Anselm of Canterbury

 Anselm of Canterbury was a Benedictine monk born in the 11th century. According to Anselm, faith precedes reason. Through reason we are unable to find God. But through first having faith in God, God will reveal himself unto us. The authors of this blog have already taken the preliminary step of faith. We wish to use this space to log our reflections on Christianity, spirituality, and on life as we experience it as young Black Christians in 21st century America.

We hope that this blog can be a place that inspires, illuminates, and sparks productive dialogue. We hope that our journey towards understanding will lead others to embark on a similar path or be helpful to those already on one. Please comment freely and be sure to return.
