Recent Entries 
Communities magazine is seeking articles on spirituality in communal living. This market doesn't pay in cash but does provide several comp copies or a year's subscription, which is nice barter for a short article.

6th-Nov-2010 04:17 pm - How to Find a Community

I enjoyed this post from the FIC.

How to Find and Join an Intentional Community
by McCune Porter, eNews editor
A key component of the non-profit Fellowship's mission is "To
serve as a reference source for those seeking intentional
communities, conferences, and other community building
experiences and practices appropriate to their needs."

One of the most frequently asked questions through our web
contact form at ic.org relates to exactly that part of our
mission, and goes something like this: "I was wondering if you
have some suggestions for me in regards to visiting or joining an
intentional community."

I got this post from the FIC, which folks might find useful:

Part of the FIC's vision is that community would be available to
all who desire it. And yet, while many people desire more
community in their lives, they don't all know that intentional
communities even exist. I'm sure we could all tell a story of
someone saying "I didn't know communities still existed, I
thought they all fell apart in the 60s." Or you might have met
someone who said "I've been dreaming for years of living a
cooperative life with friends and just now found out that other
people are doing it -- I thought I was alone in that desire?"

9th-Sep-2010 02:37 pm - Recent News About Householding?
What news or posts have you seen recently that feature householding or other intentional community topics?
Communities magazine features a variety of topics dealing with intentional community.  The current issue (Fall 2010 #148) has a theme of Power and Empowerment.  Some of the articles have been posted on the website, so now you can read mine there, "Balancing Powers: Leadership and Followship in Community."  I also recommend "More Perspectives on Leadership and Followship: A Response to Elizabeth Barrette" by Ma'ikwe Schaub Ludwig. 

You can read some of my other Communities  articles by visiting my author page.  "Householding: Communal Living on a Small Scale" and "The Richness of Giving" are posted online.
