Chance for housing

I had an informal meeting yesterday with Ryan and Ceceliah Igweta, the abbess of the Epworth Project, which oversees housing for the Missional Wisdom Foundation.

There are five houses in the DFW area -- Bonhoeffer, Francis, and Cochran in Dallas; there's also a house in Plano and one in Arlington. (There's also a house in Waco, about 90 miles southwest of Dallas. Needless to say, I'd rather not live that far away.)

Each house is a "neo-monastic community" living by a rule of life based partly on the Vows of Membership in the United Methodist Church (Rule of Life).

I'll admit that it's kind of freaky to me that I'm so enthused about the idea of living in what amounts to a religious commune, but I am. And the fact that it'll get me off the streets is actually of secondary importance to me. This really seems like something I've been looking for for most if not all my life, and I want it.
