Community Life In Commerce, TX

Community Life In Commerce, TX

Here in Commerce, Texas, we have seven students who began living in intentional community together this August; four women in the Hallelujah House and three men in the Sabbath House. Both houses share a common rule of life that includes prayer, meals together, and a commitment to living in community. But, each household also has a certain quirkiness to how they live out the lifestyle...

Youth Academy for Missional Wisdom Pilot Launched

This program is a pilot initiative of the Missional Wisdom Foundation to provide students in grades 9-12 with formation in practices of prayer, hospitality and justice leading to the formation of missional and new monastic communities in diverse contexts. Students will meet twice a month for a covenant group including a simple meal and face-to-face conversation about how the online classes are connecting with living the Rule of Life and day-to-day life at home and school. Students will also meet once a month for justice formation, working together with a mentor to learn ways of being missionally engaged with neighbors in diverse contexts.

What is Missing When We Start New Ministries?

What is Missing When We Start New Ministries?

Written by Nicole Reilley

I think the reality is that many new ministries will last for a season, some a long season but others will be very short. And really, I don’t have trust in the new ministry; I have trust in the person leading and their willingness to work with the Holy Spirit. I believe them to be a person of value, so if this doesn’t work out and the ministry doesn’t work (didn’t Jesus said only 25% will produce a harvest?), we will celebrate that and move on to what God has for us next. Yes, we will celebrate what didn’t work cause we have learned and we are getting closer to what will.

Too often we approach a context with a condescending attitude of, "We're bringing Jesus to this place." That's a load of garbage. Jesus was already there and working among the people long before we ever got the nerve to get up out of our pews.
