Just tought I'd give you a destination:
http://twelvetribes.org/community/fieldstone-orchard is our farm; and, http://twelvetribes.org/community/community-lawrence is a community.
Likewise,I don't believe in communism; however, in Acts 2, we believe a key to Our lives is found here:
"42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. 45 And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved."
I am thankful for your reply.
I understand your need: "This would NOT be a commune nor a dictatorship but a voluntary association of free property owners (insomuch as we can own property in the world today) all with equal say in all big decisions. That does not mean there will not be leadership but there will be as flat an organization of equals as possible with some temporary areas of leadership/servantship.. "
We want to guide you to a people who practice this type of life. I understand you may want to start up your own community; however, very soon one realizes: I am nothing without all.

I have been looking to do something very similar to the community you are looking to create. I am able to invest and purchase now as well. I am very sensitive to chemicals and EMFs (especially wireless devices)...

Can a "christian agrarian" community be defined ? I think I get "agrarian" but not as sure as what qualifies as "christian" in our present conversation.
What does it take for a community effort to qualify as christian?
Thanks very much for the help.
Jon Marc Harshbarger wrote:Love this thread. It seems as though there are more of us (Christian permies looking for community) out there than I once thought I have land in upstate new York that has amazing potential (yes, I know, Upstate New York??) It is 60 acres that was once used as a heritage farm meant to show farm life in the late nineteenth century. It still has many of the original buildings, although they are in need of attention. There is a cider press building, small blacksmith shop, sugar shack etc... Anyway, I wish more of you like-minded, Christian agrarian folks lived nearby.
Leif ing wrote:So, what updates to this thread? As a Christian and a new wannabe farmer/permie in the KC area, I am interested in how this goes. Would like to meet others around to learn from, but that might be hard with my Sun/Mon weekend. Looking for an alternative to the corporate rat race though... working on paying off debts this year, and trying to get something started in my backyard (about 1/6 acre back there.)
