Vine and Fig Tree seeking new members

Vine and Fig Tree is an intentional Christian community in the  Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia (  We currently have five households, but one of our units will be opening in the coming months.  We are looking for persons who would be interested in exploring community with us.  Our core commitments are:  support of each other in our lives and vocations; common prayer; living simply and caring for creation; resisting the dominant culture, including our own addictions to militarism, racism, and other “isms”; providing hospitality for persons in need or transition; and fostering a spirit of celebration and creativity.   Our community life includes a weekly meal together, regular optional prayer, bi-weekly house meetings, shared chores and gardening, monthly work days.  The available unit has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, and would be ideal for two persons or a couple with a small child.
