Paul Prins: "A Fantastic Monastic Conversation"

The BETWEEN Podcast

Feb 12 2024 • 1 hr 1 min

What could living a monastic way of life teach us about how we're supposed to connect with each other? Is it possible to apply monastic principles to our busy, hurried, hungry, hangry lives? Paul Prins joins Matt Mattson as a guest on this episode of The BETWEEN Podcast. Paul is a founder and Director General of Urban Monastics, and he is trying to live a simple, gracious, and integrated life.


This conversation explores the idea of monasticism, and Paul's work with Urban Monastics provides an invitation for anyone to explore what that life might be like.


More About Paul: "I’m trying to live a simple, gracious, and integrated life. I believe the way we live flows out of the deep wells. Wells that are filled with our beliefs and values. As I meditate and contemplate, these wells have deepened. Since 2004, I’ve been a minister in different contexts and countries. These have included churches, student ministries, and homeless shelters. I received a Masters of Divinity from Bethel Theological Seminary in 2012. Alongside my ministry work, I have founded and built two successful companies. Midwest Skier was founded in 1998. Fresh Vine was founded in 2007.


I enjoy teaching, preaching, writing, and creating art. My life and faith are drawn together with the monastic practices of fasting, contemplation, and prayer. They inspire me to be present with God during my days. Since 2016, I have felt God drawing me to help found Urban Monasticism."
