Hello.Â My name is Josh.Â And I am an Anabaptist.
Well, pretty sure anyway.Â Theres only a small number of people using the label of Anabaptism is Australia, thoÂ many more exploring the traditions and those related to it.
I came to anarchism and anabaptism through a marrying of my activism and earlier evangelicalism.
My wife and I live in a small community in Perth called Peace Tree.Â PeaceÂ Tree has been around since ’04, living in a forgotten neighbourhood trying to work out how to live as Christians in a society more interested in security and money.Â Our community is small, a max population of 8, but perhaps 20 with sympathizers.
My wife (Amy) and I are actually away from home at the moment as well.Â We’ve been 5 months in Timor Leste (me working on a Permaculture garden and Amy mostly teacing english).Â This coming weekend we go the UK for 5 months and are keen to catch up with communities and like minded ppl.Â I came across this blog trying to find out what is happening (I saw another community member – Jarrod Mckenna – being written about as well).Â So, yeah, hello – I like coffee and gardening.
