Two weeks ago, I didn't know what a signal community was...and now I know that I am part of one!
This past weekend I went to one of my favorite events of the year- the Community of Christ Peace Colloquy in Independence, MO. This year's theme was Signal Communities: Hope of Zion. the Colloquy was very inspiring as always. It helped me to re-realize that we are not alone, that there are lots and lots of people working to create peace in the world. I was intellectually stimulated by a history of "signal communities" from Jesus to today. I was challenged by the stories of struggling to maintain community from the leaders of Koinonia Farms, a well-established intentional community in Georgia. And I was reminded how important the work we are doing on this blog is by a testimony by Karyn.
