I announced last month Melinda will be moving here in October to live with our family and start an intentional community with us. And after a month of not saying anything more about it, it’s time to start laying out our plans, answering your questions, and explaining more about the crazy path we’re embracing in the name of love, community, truth, friendship, beauty, grace, vulnerability and the God who has modeled all of them to us through Jesus.
Over the coming months you’ll be hearing more about these plans than you probably ever wanted to know. There will be discussions of books and web resources we’ve learned from during this process, interviews with people who have been involved in similar projects, issues we’ve worked through in preparation, stories of how this idea evolved and became a plan, and a lot of information about what it is we’re actually planning on doing. Melinda will be here on the blog regularly to help me out with all of this.
One of the questions I was asked about several times when I made the initial announcement was (and I’m paraphrasing) What in god’s name is intentional community? We’ll be answering that in a post at the beginning of next week. Also next week, we’ll be posting an FAQ that should address a number of the questions and concerns that have been posed to us since we started talking about this publicly. If you have questions you want answered that you didn’t get to ask on the original post, feel free to ask them in the comments here and we’ll make every effort to answer them.
We’re very excited to be moving forward on this journey. We’re looking forward to your support and questions and curiousity and – as long as you’re nice about it – criticism during the process. It’s a crazy idea, we’re well aware. But that suits us just fine.
