Last weekend, we hosted the annual retreat of the Nurturing Communities Network (NCN) here at Englewood Christian Church.
“an informal and growing network of Christ-centered intentional communities. Older established communities connect with novice communities for the purpose of learning from each other, encouragement and growing. This happens through visits, regional and local gatherings, meals together, and many conversations. The hope is mutual encouragement in Jesus’ way of simplicity, justice and peace.”
I was inspired by this retreat to compile the following list of books that offer diverse perspectives on life in Christian intentional community. (Some of these titles are recommended on the NCN Resource list.)
If you are curious about Christian intentional community, I encourage you to take a look at some of these books, and the NCN website.
