Many things have influenced us all over the years, from scripture, to camp experiences, to communal living arrangements.
Our faith is based on Jesus' atoning sacrifice on the cross, and on the witness He and His disciples gave as written in the New Testament and through the Holy Spirit working in and through all of us. Please don't read much in the omission of various doctrines in this statement. We just aren't theologians, and haven't responded to any comments about what we need in here (yet).
Some of the people and groups that have influenced us are:
Anabaptists like the Hutterites,
Peter Maurin and
Catholic Worker Movement , many
Christian communal groups including
Plow Creek and the
Bruderhof, people from
Athens, Ohio both at
and in the outlying areas,
Bureau County, Illinois,
churches like the
People Church and
Willow Springs Mennonite Church and many others, people
Way of Christ
Cursillo-based faith building movement),
and many others not yet mentioned here.
