Inspiration for Community

  • Jean Vanier – In 1964, inspired by his belief that community can change the world, Jean Vanier founded Faith and Light, a worldwide movement of annual retreats where people from all walks of life are welcome.
  • Eberhard Arnold – Bruderhof Founder – Eberhard Arnold founded the Bruderhof communities in 1920, in his native Germany. With Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount as a blueprint, he and a handful of friends formed a Christian community grounded in prayer, fellowship, nonviolence, and reverence for life.

Let's make the communities movement thrive!
