All Things in Common

Some thoughts on intentional community, from an old article that i just found this morning. Its called All Things in Common (2002)

In community, “you get hurt more deeply. You laugh harder,” says Shane Claiborne of The Simple Way

“It’s like a freaking operating room,” Brian Ollman says. “It’s bloody but it’s beautiful. It’s scary but it’s safe. Everything you think you should be … goes out the window. You’re just getting life on life.”

“I think we need to raise the bar of what it means to be a Christian so that it includes living in some form of community as normative for Christian life,” Tom Sine

“Discipleship involves almost detoxing from the wider culture.” Kevin Rains

Within the group, “all the gifts are there and everything that’s needed is somehow available for ministry,” Andrew Jones


Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)
