In Search of Christian Community

Group Discussion of Primary texts (handed out each week) on the topic of Christian Community

Feb 21: 2:30 - 3:30 Session I

New Testament Texts on Christian Community: How did the early Christians live in community? What hints and

examples of community do we find in the New Testament, especially the Acts of the Apostlesí?

Feb 28: 2:30-3:30 Session II

Arguably the most successful, yet most maligned form of Christian community is monasticism. This week we

begin examining selections from the Rule of St Benedict. What, if anything, can we learn for these texts that might help

 us in our times and point a way forward amid our present confusions?

March 7: 2:30-3:30 Session III

We continue examining the Rule of St Benedict. Why the stress on obedience? On  humility? Why separate the sexes?

Is Christian community possible with private property?             

March 14: 2:30-3:30 Session IV

What new expressions and attempts at Christian community exist in Anglicanism? What does the Prayer Book envision for Christians living in community? What of Little Gidding? Of Pilsdon?  Iona?  What vision of Christian Community is projected in the BAS?

Why has there been such an emphasis on Christian Community since the 1960s?
