New “Monasticism” Needed

With the Christian faith becoming more sidelined in the Western World, there is a greater need for community-initiatives of people who commit to each other and to some common tasks.  We see these communities spring up everywhere: groups of   people who commit to serving their neighbourhoods, to regular common prayer, to common study, to helping one another.

I expect this to increase more, especially also in the light of social security systems being overstretched and in the light for loneliness in our individualised societies. Should this be promoted? Or is it a matter of ‘let us see what happens’?
