A group of young Methodists are putting their faith in ‘co-housing’
From re:generation quarterly.
While some North American congregations spend vast sums on expanding physical plants, their next generation is asking, “Is this all there is?” These young people are unwilling to let modernity arrange most of the furniture of life, while faith is reduced to a trivial diversion on the edges. They don’t want to compartmentalize their faith–even if it’s a large, well-furnished compartment with an indoor swimming pool and a food court. They want a church that is actually connected to the rest of lives–or better yet, a church that actually shapes their lives.
