Panel: Counter-Cultural Community: living a ‘very common life’


The idea of living in community can sound a little odd, perhaps almost impossible. How do you genuinely live ‘in common’ while treasuring diversity? How can you connect deeply to justice concerns while living ‘apart’? And what does living according to a ‘rule of life’ really look like? Iona Community folk share their experiences of living a very ‘common life’ and answer your questions. Led by Martin Wroe and Leanne Clelland, together with Iona Abbey staff – Patrick Small, Lyn Meier, Andy Evans, Chris Mannell, Helen Singleton, Emma Lowe – and Iona Community Members – Ruth Harvey and others.
