Rock Point Intentional Community: Who are we? What is it? By no means are we settled in answering that question. One year ago we were gathering our first meetings of those interested in forming an intentional community to support the vision for Rock Point: “to be a welcoming sanctuary of spriituality, community, educaion, training, and environmental stewardship.” We are looking to create a channel through which people can express their love and care for Rock Point and to “feel our way forward” as we shape a community to serve this purpose. There are over 60 of us involved in some way at this point.
What do we do? Where are we headed? We are still very much in process of shaping this community. Starting in August of 2014, we have met every two months. Our decision was to make a simple rule to pray for Rock Point and each other every day and to find some means of tangibly supporting the Rock Point vision. We formed working groups at our August retreat for these purposes: 1) establishing a prayerful presence at Rock Point; 2) forming a group to support diocesan retreats at Rock Point; 3) explore and propose a system for composting at Rock Point. We will check in on progress after engaging these for a year and see what other needs connected to the vision we may serve. Some of our members are currently connecting with other groups who use the property to help implement our land use plan for Rock Point.
How can you get involved or check RPIC out? You can contact Jackie or me: firstname.lastname@example.org. Our next regular meeting will be in August and we will be publicizing the date and time soon. We have different levels of membership: member, associate, or friend. To become part of our regular communications, let Jackie know.
