Monastic Communities, other Groups

Thanks to Rachelle Mee-Chapman for the link to groups emerging in homes, as monastic communities, etc. Our church took on such a form while meeting in homes and I miss the sense of community and the focus on community action rather than attraction and a building (we didn't have these either!). Read the Seattle Times article here.

Thanks for pointing me to this article! I have been part of an intentional home church community in the Atlanta area for years now, and it has been quite the journey. There are thousands of house churches throughout North America now, and by all indications they are only growing. More recently I've been tracking what I call the neo-monastic phenomenon, which this article centers more around. I've been able to find a number of such communities around the US--you can see what I've discovered here.
