    Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s New Monasticism: A Central Influence

    , , , , ,
    This booklet, by Trevor Miller, looks at the ways in which Dietrich Bonhoeffer has been an influence on our Community. A Lutheran Pastor in the Confessing Church in Germany in the 1930s, Bonhoeffer’s early exploration of Community and New Monasticism was cut short by the Nazi regime, but his writings have lived on. In this booklet Trevor helps us to make the connections between Bonhoeffer’s life and work and our own journey as a Community.

    Melodies of a New Monasticism: Bonhoeffer’s Vision, Iona’s Witness

    ,
    The New Monastic Movement is a vibrant source of renewal for the church's life and mission. Many involved in this movement have quoted Dietrich Bonhoeffer's conviction that the church must recover ancient spiritual disciplines if it is to effectively engage 'the powers that be'. Melodies of a New Monasticism adopts a musical metaphor of polyphony (the combination of two or more lines of music) to articulate the way that these early Christian virtues can be woven together in community. Creatively using this imagery, this book draws on the theological vision of Bonhoeffer and the contemporary witness of George MacLeod and the Iona Community to explore the interplay between discipleship, doctrine, and ethics.

    Matching Monastery and Mission

    ,
    George Lings 'accompanied' the Community during 2005 (as part of 'Building Bridges of Hope') and has written this very helpful exploration of where the Northumbria Community fits into the 'fresh expressions of church' scene today. He examines particularly the Community's balance between the interior life ('monastery') and its outward expression (mission'). George Lings concludes: If the need today is for deep people then here is the portal to inner attentiveness in following Jesus and the painful but liberation process of being transformed by Him.' This booklet is part of the Encounters on the Edge series. A downloadable PDF version of the booklet is also available.

    Seize the Day

    , , , ,
    Dietrich Bonhoeffer's faith-driven resistance to the Nazis during World War II resulted in his execution. Multitudes have been inspired by the hauntingly powrful words of this man who was willing to die for his convictions. In this collection of 365 meditations Dr Charles Ringma allows us to experience the power of Bonhoeffer's words in a way that challenges us to live out our discipleship daily - combining personal spirituality with an active concern for those around us. These daily meditations on Bonhoeffer's writings may make you uncomfortable. But if you are willing to wrestle - as Bonhoeffer did - with what it means to be a follower of Christ, you'll be empowered to seize each day.

    Creating Community: Ancient Ways for Modern Churches

    , , ,
    There is much talk today of 'new ways of being church' and 'new monastic spirituality'. As Simon Reed explored the Celtic roots of the Christian faith, in community with others who drew inspiration from our spiritual ancestors in the British Isles, he came to realise that the third-millennium church has much in common with the first-millennium church and, more importantly, much to learn from it. In Creating Community, he introduces us to a new but at the same time very old way of being church which is based upon three core elements: A Way of Life, a network of Soul Friends, and a rhythm of prayer. The book shows how the rediscovery of these elements by Christians today offers a vital key that opens up an ancient way for modern churches, one that not only helps to bring believers to lasting maturity but creates genuine and much-needed community in an increasingly fragmented world.

    Life Together

    , ,
    Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the now famous theologian who was martyred by the Nazis in 1945, wrote this book on the eve of World War II. It resulted from his experience as head of a semiary of the German 'Confessing Church' at Finkenwalde near Stettin. Here many of the pastors who witnessed against Hitler received their inspiration. It was, as Professor John D. Godsey points out in his study of The Theology of Deitrich Bonhoeffer, 'a kind of theological education that was startlingly new in Germany: a communal life in which Jesus Christ's call to discipleship was taken seriously.' Professor Godsey calls Life Together 'simply written, powerfully convincing and unusually quotable...It is an attempt to give practical guidance to those who want to take their lives as Christians seriously.'

    Followers of the Way: Ancient discipleship for modern Christians

    , , ,
    One of the most pressing issues in today's church is encouraging people to become true and effective disciples of Jesus Christ. If, in simple terms, discipleship is about connecting more deeply with God and connecting God with the whole of life, Simon Reed argues, we're looking at a life-long process for which we require long-term skills rather than short-term courses. The Celtic and Desert Christians, drawing on Old and New Testament practices, taught and modelled how to do this through the practice of living by a Way of Life. By drawing together today's need for disciples and Celtic Christianity, Followers of the Way inspires authentic Christian discipleship for the contemporary world.

    What has become of the mission of God?

    Against the prevailing Western models, influenced by the values and principles of international commerce, presented here are five “signs of life,” showcased by a network of movements best known by many as “new friars.”

    ·      Jose Penate-Aceves, Darren Prince and John B. Hayes of InnerCHANGE

    ·      Phileena Heuertz, David Chronic and Christopher Heuertz of Word Made Flesh 

    ·      Derek Engdahl and Jean-Luc Krieg of Servant Partners

    ·      Craig and Nayhouy Greenfield of Servants to Asia’s Urban Poor

    ·      Ash Barker of Urban Neighbours of Hope. 

    God’s kingdom in the hands of the people of God, the contributors show us, is first and foremost incarnational, which leads necessarily to gospel witness that is devotional, communal, missional and marginal. With a survey of the history of new friar movements and commentary by forerunner Viv Grigg, this seminal book paints a picture of mission that is new only because it has been neglected for so long, a mission that is truly good news to the people in its path.

    New Monasticism as Fresh Expressions of Church

    ,
    Signs of fresh life, springing up from the roots of traditional monastic life, can be seen throughout the Church as growing numbers of groups - whether gathered or scattered - seek to live the gospel with renewed integrity. Is God shaping a new monasticism? Can ancient tradition enrich the life and mission of the wider Church? Can it engage with the complexity of contemporary culture and create an atmosphere, as Abbot Stuart Burns ask, where Christ can be encountered? New monastic pioneers from Britain and America share their stories and reflect on their commitment to mission in diverse local contexts, sustained by community and a rule of life. They explore how the essentials of monastic spirituality  - prayer, hospitality, community, rhythm of life and practical engagement - can resource a mission in today's world where the Church and culture often stand far apart.

    The New Friars

    ,
    Across the ages God has consistently attracted a few in every crowd who would make and keep vows, and called them to stick out, act out and speak out. In The New Friars Scott Bessenecker profiles young Christians who have voluntarily removed themselves from the status quo in order to seek justice and mercy with the poorest of the world's poor. These new friars are carrying on the work of the monastic tradition, the spirit of Francis and Clare of Assisi, St. Patrick and St. Brigid, the Jesuits and Nestorians and Moravians. The New Friars will show you that with God all things even uncommon acts of courageous faith are possible.

    The challenge of new monasticism by Simon Cross In this challenging and informative book, Simon Cross sets out some of the context for the concepts of monasticism and ‘religious life’, and explores how some groups in the UK today are imitating the monastic and religious traditions. Here, Simon shows us communities and groups which all, in widely different ways, live as new monastics; they may be on farms, or on a council estate; they may be living together, or widely dispersed, they may be of one church, or from a variety of denominations, they may have banded together around a cause, or for the single purpose of seeking God. However they choose to live these dynamic new monastics are carrying on the tradition of their forebears, in a way fitting for the twenty-first century.
