Comments The Cost of Community: Jesus, St. Francis and Life in the Kingdom

  1. Many of my long time readers may know that I have a long time fascination with St Francis and his organic mix of deep Christ centered spirituality and a true commitment to ministries of compassion and mercy As many of my friends I have served in ministry know, in the last 5 10 years I have also developed a little bit of a fascination with the Sermon on the Mount, and how it so succinctly and wisely shares about the power of the kingdom of God So, when a book came along that tried to communicate [...]


  2. This book challenged me than I was anticipating And it was a gift to be so challenged Jamie Arpin Ricci brings to life what it would look like if we take seriously the call of Christ in the sermon on the mount and acted like it makes a difference With wonderful story telling, humility, and personal reflection, The Cost of Community offers an invitation to follow Jesus through the lens of St.Francis loving all the earth holds, choosing humility and poverty, and ultimately taking a daring step in [...]


  3. This was a joy to read The author is part of an Anglican lay order based on Francis of Assisi While the book is structured as a light commentary on the Sermon on the Mount, he interweaves his biblical reflections with both heart warming and painful stories from Little Flowers Community, intentional Christian community in Winnipeg, Manitoba.



  4. Is it really possible to live the Sermon on the Mount Figures as significant as Leo Tolstoy have debated this throughout history Jamie Arpin Ricci, who has formed an urban, Christian Community, the Little Flowers Community in Winnipeg, thinks we can The book is a report structured around the text of Jesus sermon, tracing how this community has practiced the beatitudes, learned the blessings of poverty, practicing peace making, seeking justice and living in humility rather than judgment with each [...]


  5. Br Jamie Arpin Ricci strikes a good balance here between exegesis, historical narrative and personal reflection On the exegetical side, Arpin Ricci examines the three chapters of Matthew s Gospel that make up the Sermon on the Mount He takes some interesting stances to draw the contemporary reader into the Gospel narrative, for example, he calls the Lord s Prayer the Disciple s Prayer because of how Jesus teaches his followers through it He also provides an honest but brief examination of St Fra [...]


  6. If you want to go beyond theological speculation to living out the Sermon on the Mount then you need to get this book Read it Live it Jamie Aprin Ricci weaves together the life of St Francis, the Little Flowers Community and his own life to help us honestly wrestle through what it means to follow Jesus in our world today His vulnerability is refreshing If you read this book carefully, and reflect on how Jamie and his faith community are following Jesus, you will soon realize that while the cost [...]


  7. Any book that seeks to combine the Sermon on the Mount, the life of St Francis, and living in community is an ambitious undertaking Overly ambitious maybe, as whole books have been written just on the Sermon on the Mount, or just on St Francis, or just on living in community, yet these three streams come together very well in this book.For a complete review, please see aprilyamasaki 2012 10 04 t


  8. Great book on intentional urban community, living like Jesus in that community, and learning from your neighbors while doing it


  9. Challenging but real Doesn t pull punches If you want to embrace radical and real christianity through Christ, start here, not at church.


  10. Excellent book on community and a great exposition of the Sermon on the Mount Thank you Jamie for this gift to the church


  11. This is another e book I picked up on my phone I largely picked it up because the author belongs to a community in Winnipeg, my wife s hometown The book is written in the new Monastic tradition a movement which is re claiming a near monastic experience in the urban deserts of North American Europe On the whole, I m sympathetic with the movement, especially with the social justice aspect which is superb I do find the occasionally all or nothing tone a little off putting There are different calls [...]


  12. I have now read this gem of a book 3 times, and each time I find something new to challenge me This book has seen me in tears as I know that God has spoken to me through the pages of it Its brought fresh revelation and challenges Some of which have been uncomfortable And for that I m thankful Its pages are scattered with underlines and notes on what I was thinking as I read what can only be described as seeing in print what my heart was already saying This family and community are the real deal [...]


  13. I didn t finish the whole book I was using it for an article I was writing but the article took another slant as I was writing it so I ended up not having to finish the book Not sure if I will, as I just don t have the time If you are interested in the Sermon on the Mount, it is a very good book.
