In the midst of an established monastic life, Richard Carter answered a new call, leaving his life of 15 years in the Melanesian Brotherhood to answer a need in a busy church in the heart of London, Saint Martin-in-the-Fields. There Carter founded the Nazareth Community. Its diverse members—in Samuel Wells’ words from the foreword, “a community of faith and forsaken, wondrous and woolly”—gather from everyday life to seek God in contemplation, to acknowledge their dependence on God's grace, and to learn to live openly and generously with all. With wit, wisdom, and generosity, Richard Carter tells the story of the Nazareth Community, and offers spiritual insight for daily Gospel life rooted in these seven spiritual pillars: Silence, Service, Scripture, Sacrament, Sharing, Sabbath Time and Staying.
