Why, in an age of connectivity, are our lives more isolated and fragmented than ever? And what can be done about it? The answer lies in the hands of God’s people. Increasingly, today’s Christians want to be the church, to follow Christ together in daily life. From every corner of society, they are daring to step away from the status quo and respond to Christ’s call to share their lives more fully with one another and with others. As they take the plunge, they are discovering the rich, meaningful life that Jesus has in mind for all people, and pointing the church back to its original calling: to be a gathered, united community that demonstrates the transforming love of God.Of course, such a life together with others isn’t easy. The selections in this volume are, by and large, written by practitioners—people who have pioneered life in intentional community and have discovered in the nitty-gritty of daily life what it takes to establish, nurture, and sustain a Christian community over the long haul.Whether you have just begun thinking about communal living, are already embarking on sharing life with others, or have been part of a community for many years, the pieces in this collection will encourage, challenge, and strengthen you. The book’s fifty-two chapters can be read one a week to ignite meaningful group discussion.

    This is what transforms the whole character of their fellowship. The wife obeys her husband “in the Lord”; by serving his master the slave serves God, and the master knows that he too has a Lord in heaven (Col. 3:18–4:1), but they are all brethren “in the flesh and in the Lord.”

    In the church, people look upon one another no longer as freemen or slaves, as men or women, but as members of Christ’s body. To be sure, this does not mean that the slave is no longer a slave nor the man a man. But it does mean that in the church no one has to be considered in his special capacity, whether he be Jew or Greek, freeman or bondservant.

    This is how the church invades the life of the world and conquers territory for Christ. For whatever is “in Christ” has ceased to be subject to the world of sin and the law. No law of the world can interfere with this fellowship.
