Why this blog?
What’s your first impression of what it’s like to be a member of a high-commitment Christian missionary organization? Are you picturing members in white-collar shirt-and-tie outfits? Complete with bicycles or other equally old-fashioned modes of transportation?
What if one of the tenets of your faith was to live communally, striving to share material possessions in the mould of the early Christian church? Does this bring communes to mind? Or farming communities, milking cows and living off the land?
What if you knew that the group was born out of the late-60′s Hippie Movement? That wild and crazy time that’s only a distant memory to most? Are you picturing robes, flowers, chanting, drugs and free sex?
