Sunny Summers

I am having the nicest summer so far. Every day is a delight. I'm spent an almost perfect night and day in Hornsby with Hannah and Gem. And all the other days have been marvelous and full of friends as well. Although I have only been to the beach once.

I jammed a stick into the bottom of my iPhone and it gave me this

Wikileaks and Paypal

I've just deleted my Paypal account because they've prevented anyone from donating to Wikileaks. It only took a few minutes and I had the chance to tell them why I did it.

L’Arche Bubbles

We had a L'Arche gathering a few months back. I wrote down some things to share with the people there.

  • L'Arche needs something radical
    • it has become a solution not a sign
    • people don't participate because of the number of people the organisation can support
  • Assistant movement should be symmetrical around the world
    • one country shouldn't have all it's assistance provided by overseas assistants
  • Core purpose of the community must be owned by the community (life in the houses)
  • Community life must be imaginable
    • without that there is no sign, it just becomes a funny and finite experiment
  • At one point L'Arche definitely had something to say to the world, and people listened to that
  • L'Arche is one radical idea, facilitated by an enormous and conservative structure and legacy
  • What role do leaders have who exclude themselves from the possibility of full involvement in the community?

Probably won't make much sense out of context, but I suppose it's a summary of why I think L'Arche is struggling. I'd like to rightwrite a proper something about my experience there some time.
