As I mentioned I’m seriously interested in starting some kind of local organization to allow me to impact the community around me. But other than hot air of, which I possess an abundance, I was short on practical know-how. I started re-reading Rod Dreher’s,”The Benedict Option,” and I think it will be useful. I previously reviewed it last year.
But now I’m looking at it more as a handbook, so it will take a good deal more time to weigh the information to decide what is helpful to me. At this point, at the very least it has given me a number of resources for researching directions to go. If anyone else is looking for ways to build alternative social platforms I recommend that you take a look at Dreher’s book. There are definitely some useful starting points at the very least. And even if your position is non-religious there are things to think about in this book.
