Dear Communities contributors and friends,

Communities magazine is still seeking articles and article proposals for issue #190, "Faith in Community." (See The issue will be out in March 2021.

Please send your article ideas to editor [at] by Monday, September 28, 2020, or whenever you can.

We ask that your final article reach us by Friday, November 27, 2020.

1. Theme articles: Faith in Community

Please share your experiences, stories, and perspectives in response to any (or any combination) of the following questions:

* Do you have faith that community is an effective way to help address human needs, social ills, planetary problems? * What experiences have led you to have more faith in community as an answer to these needs/problems, or caused you to question this faith?
* Has the pandemic made any difference in your attitudes toward community?
* Have you felt reassured, or disillusioned, about your choices related to community in the face of recent experiences? * What is your “journey of faith” related to intentional community (or other forms of community)–one of increasing faith, decreasing faith, or both? * Does your community share a faith tradition, or have you created your own? What is your approach to religion and/or spirituality? * Does faith in a common greater reality or overarching spiritual essence or approach to life serve as a form of glue that binds your community together? * Or are these areas matters of individual choice, and if so, how are they held? (Encouraged? Regarded neutrally? Discouraged?) * What is the role of faith, spirituality, and/or religion in your community? * Is community itself a spiritual practice for you or your group, quite apart from any external faith, spiritual tradition, or religion? * Among the things that give meaning to your own life, or the life of your community, where does community itself rank? Is it something you “believe” in at more than a purely pragmatic level? (Or is pragmatism itself your “faith”?) * How are faith and community, however you interpret those concepts, intertwined in your life and/or that of your group?

Please remember that we are looking for stories, personal experiences, and concrete examples in your responses—these are what will make ideas and observations most "real" and relevant to readers.
