After almost 30 years in some form of Christianity including
evangelical, anabaptist, house church, intentional community and a
seminary degree, I have been outside of the "church" for about five
years. I would like to consider an alternative to church planting -
something outside the institution and without traditional forms,
language, and structures.
I would like to be involved in something focused on community building, spirituality (centered on the teachings of Jesus but open - perhaps Quaker like), and mission that includes social and environmental involvement in a variety of ways. I imagine this could take many forms starting with grass roots community organization to the development of co-housing type communities.
I have often dreamed of folks that claim to follow Jesus to lead the way
towards social change. I imagine a network that supports and encourages
one another while offering resources for new groups to get started.
Is anyone here interested in dialogue?
