Why do we live in a community?
All our community members have received a vocation to live in a community. We believe that community is a rare place where one can practice God’s most important commandment: to love your neighbor as yourself. Our greatest happiness stems from our ability to love and let ourselves be loved by others. Community is a place where Kingdom of God can be practiced on earth, where one can experience and share the whole spectrum of human condition. From happiness to grief, from solidarity to division, from great joy to profound sadness whilst keeping our hearts and eyes firmly on the path that leads closer to our Lord Jesus Christ. Community is a safe and challenging place at the same time, a place where people can open themselves up to others, share life, their gifts and talents with their brothers and sisters. Also ones imperfections and weaknesses can be brought into the light and if they are acknowledged healing process can commence. First step of solving any problem is to admit you have one. So we try to work on our own imperfections and help each other see things that separate us from God. We examine our lives and through God’s grace try to take even the smallest step forward every day.
Communitarian living gives us the ability to utilize our resources more efficiently, therefore waste and underutilization is minimized. We reuse clothing, repair furniture, we have only mechanic tractors, which we can repair ourselves. For families living in our community, we offer more safety, extended support network that allows them to spend more time together then they could by living elsewhere. We supply more than a half of our food from our organic farm. We compost our organic waste and later use it as a natural fertilizer.
