brown sandalWow, the Washington Post loves walking monks! Last week they posted a great story about six Franciscan friars walking from Virginia to Washington, D.C.. “The sight of six men in flowing habits, trudging single file on the side of the road, prompted many to pull over and talk, even confess.”

And yesterday they posted this piece by James Reston, Jr. (a journalist, not a monk, but I can’t help but imagine him in thick brown sandals!) following in the footsteps of Reformation leader Martin Luther.

When you’re out there in your sneakers, keep your eyes peeled for men in sandals!
