Description

An account of the Bruderhof community's faith and the scriptural basis for its members' beliefs and practices. From the New Testament onward, Christians have testified to their faith through the written word. In that tradition, the Bruderhof, an international, intentional Christian community movement, published Foundations of Our Faith and Calling in 2012. It is a public account of the community's faith and practice and describes tenets and orders common to all Bruderhof communities. All members took part in drafting, revising, and eventually unanimously approving the text.show more

Review quote

I congratulate the members of the Bruderhof on their community's new constitution, Foundations of our Faith and Calling. Since my appointment as Archbishop of New York, it has been a joy for me to visit the Bruderhof communities and to work together with them in proclaiming the gospel message, especially in regard to marriage, the family, and the sanctity of life. I treasure the Bruderhof's Christian witness as a significant contribution to the wider church today. The Bruderhof, as a religious community that includes families, seems part of the great and venerable tradition of Christian monasticism. Foundations thus is similar to the Rule of St. Benedict: visionary yet practical, theologically profound yet always down to earth. Deeply anchored in Scripture, Foundations calls the church to renewal and testifies to the world what it means to live as brothers and sisters in Christ. (October 2012) Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New Yorkshow more
