some resources on intentional community

Here are a few simple resources for someone asking “What’s out there already in the way of intentional Christian communal living?”

A network of catholic/anabaptist communities. Jonathan Wilson Hartgrove, Shane Claiborne

http://newmonasticism.org/

My own church’s membership covenant which my wife and I signed

http://jpusa.org/covenant.html

Reba Place Fellowship, over fifty and still very influential

http://www.rebaplacefellowship.org/Home

I’m intentionally keeping this list small. There are many more. If you want to visit a community don’t just show up. Do your homework. Arrange a formal visit. Be prepared to ask good questions and talk about yourself. That would make it a good experience.
