What is an intentional community?
Most of us live in accidental communities, places that grow up kind of willy nilly and in all directions around natural resources, commerce centers. In the western part of the US this is especially true. An intentional community is a village, neighborhood or development that is built around a specific purpose--social, economic, religious, even political. Lots of intentional communities exist for many of reasons all over the world, and can look very different, one from one another. But what makes them all intentional communities is a shared vision and purpose carried out in relationship with one another.
