the importance of people


I saw this video here by one of my super fave bloggers, Miss Cottage Girl. I know these folks seem a little kooky with the whole communal shower and everything, but I think these people may be on to something. I believe this is how God intended us to live. In community, living open and honestly, as a family, sharing, giving, eating, and loving each other. We weren't meant to go through life alone. I mean it's a struggle, but maybe a good one. Sometimes God mean about a struggle. Job anyone? And most of the time, struggles just bring us closer to God (not to mention the people around us). Just a few things to ponder...
What do you think? How do you feel about this video?

That's exactly what I thought when I saw this. My life at camp is similar to communal living and I must say it's amazing and tough at the same time. I dread the day that I will live in a normal house with neighbors I barely know and not have "family dinners" at least once a week.
Thanks for the sweet words! I enjoy your blog just as much.

That is the most wonderful house.

as much as i think that living in community with one another is a very beautiful and worthwhile thing, i have a hard time seeing myself enjoying that lifestyle. i'm naturally a very private person and i need solitude for so many hours a day or else i start to feel crazy. i think that the fact that these people are able to live this way and build something from nothing is very admirable, because i know it would be very challenging for me.

I have secretly always thought that life would be best lived hippie-style in a commune. But clean and sweet and with flowers and friends.
