THANKS FOR YOUR article, "The Receiving End of Mission," May-June 1998 ("Life in Community," by Joe Nangle, OFM). It has given me the additional push to get through (or around) the roadblocks. My dream is for base communities in every town in Maine. At least that is my start.
I also have developed a Web page for base communitiesùan area where peoples of the world can learn all about the positive effect and life-changing experiences that can occur when people locally work together. If it takes a village to raise a child, it will take base communities to make that village!
The base community Web page is starting with the basics, but we have many good ideas-all done with donations, by the way (http://www.BaseCommunity.Org).
