eco-discipleship communities in 2016: seeking expressions of interest
How many snow peas does it take to change a Christian? Uniting Earth is working towards creating two exciting and unique opportunities for you to find out in 2016, but before we go any further we want to hear from people who would be interested.
One possibility is to spend the year in a communal house in Wauchope, attempting to live a “one planet” lifestyle together. What does “living simply so that others may simply live” actually look and feel like?
The other is somewhere between a month and a semester, on an organic property just outside Bellingen, where you can live in your own tent, a shelter of your own construction, or share a giant communal shed. This will be very basic living in one of the eco-aware centres of the Mid North Coast.
Both properties have large communal gardens to help you explore the links between food, faith, ecology and justice. You will be well supported by mentors and experts in various fields, as well as contributing your own knowledge and experience.
People of good will aged 18-30, who are willing to work together courageously and compassionately, and engage with Jesus’ life and teachings as they do so, are invited to read more, and then express interest via http://unitingearthweb.org.au/oneearthcommunity
