  • #WeAreMenno: Re-making the good life in New Mexico – Mennonite Church USA
    We learned to milk goats shear sheep make cheese plant trees catch water and grow a good bit of our food in the high desert More than once we ve been called feral One citified visitor from Philadelphia giggled when she entered our thirty foot diameter yurt and she immediately started snapping photos She simply couldn t believe we use a composting toilet and carry water by hand in buckets like millions of people across the world Now we re making another shift in our quest to live a better good life We ve established TiLT The Taos Initiative for Life Together We re fixing up a ten room seven fireplace adobe hacienda in the center of Taos our prayer is that this hand built home of earth and wood will become an incubator for intentional life change starting with our own lives Mountain States Mennonite Conference supports TiLT as an emerging lifeway laboratory for those of us who want to follow Jesus in a way that is earth honoring empire resisting despair erasing and culture changing In our time of both ecological and economic crisis we attempt to practice watershed discipleship a deeply place based way of life encouraging us to adapt our needs to a finite planet rather than forcing the planet to adapt to our infinite needs What does watershed discipleship look like in Taos New Mexico Let me tell you about my friend Stephanie Stephanie is an educator and activist with a Ph D Like many of my friends she is intelligent passionate creative and suspicious of organized religion She left institutional Christianity a long time ago it was far more hurtful than helpful to her as she was growing up but she likes the way my wife and I are trying to follow Jesus We give her hope She s part of the loosely affiliated band we call TiLT Some of us identify as Christian others do not but we all strive to re imagine the good life in America starting with our own We re inconsistent and distracted with other concerns but we often find ourselves growing food together raising goats together educating children together wandering the mountains together We run camps and start schools and lead treks and build greenhouses and mentor apprentices and manage non profits and conspire to change our lives together journeying deeper into the Watershed Way If you re daunted by our example don t be We re pretenders Yes we live a slightly parallel existence but we re still solidly embedded in American consumer culture My family has a laptop per person too many cars a cappuccino maker cell phones and a voracious appetite for Netflix We take our son to soccer practice in a Prius Though we dabble with homesteading in the high desert we re still embedded in the economy of empire deeply conforming to the system Like us you too might be deeply enmeshed in the very systems we need to transform Like us you
