This summer I’ll be sitting on a panel about intentional Christian community with some scholars from Abilene Christian University (Daniel’s alma mater). These scholars traveled the continent visiting intentional communities such as Reba Place Fellowship, Church of the Sojourners, and Communitas. They have compiled some valuable resources about intentional community at their website: modelingintentionalcommunity.org. http://modelingintentionalcommunity.org/about-mic/ I especially appreciated their page on “Shared Assets”, or what things are held in common in a given community. The site also provides an extensive resources page, including a representative list of communities and a large bibliography. I look forward to posting more after I meet with these folks at the Christian Scholars Conference this summer.
