Monastery of the Holy Spirit
On my way home from the retreat, I stopped at the Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Conyers, Georgia. It is a peaceful place. The Trappist Monks are very welcoming, and have a shop where they sell bread, fudge, rosaries, and other things that they make here. They also have a bonsai greenhouse. I have been there with my brother a few times to visit with Brother Paul, who is a bonsai expert. I don't know if he is still there. It was Sunday, and the commercial enterprises were closed. I would like to return one day when I can wander around again.
