The Haw Creek House in East Asheville has two openings and is seeking applicants. This community is hosted by Bethesda United Methodist Church and also supported by East Asheville United Methodist Church. The Haw Creek House is a female-only intentional community, which is a group of individuals who share the same home and choose to engage in a rule of life which includes prayer, worship, service, and other practices designed to deepen their relationship with Christ. Living in an opportunity to learn how to connect with the local community, work in partnership with others, you can use your gifts to be the hands and feet of Christ! Women from all denominations are invited to apply. Residents of the house should be committed to the rule of life, the ministries of the house, and sharing house responsibilities in a collaborative manner. The Haw Creek House does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, denomination, national origin, age, sexual orientation, or veteran status. If you are interested, please contact Patty Clubb at firstname.lastname@example.org or (828)989-7548.
What is an intentional community?
An intentional community is a group of individuals who share the same home and choose to engage in a rule of life which includes prayer, worship, service, and other practices designed to deepen our relationship with Christ. Women who live in the house are expected to engage in ministries of hospitality in the neighborhood, learn about the theory and practices of emerging and new monastic ministries, and participate in the worship and mission of the missional community. The Haw Creek House is inspired by the new monasticism movement. To learn more about this movement, check out the Missional Wisdom Foundation (http://missionalwisdom.com/) on the web or read Longing for Spring by Elaine Heath and Scott Kisker.
