    It seems to me that this localism would be a good opportunity to explore co-op development to provide jobs, food, more sustainable electricity, etc.

      Great to hear from you.  Can you give readers two to four examples coops that have empowered local comuunities that we could all learn from? 

      Do you have some examples where churches have created new forms of cooperatives that have had a postive impact in their local neighborhoods and communities?

      Looking forward to hearing about some of the great examples you have found Andrew.  I would welcome others to send in their examples too.

    Our Sanctuary Community in Issaquah is doing something like this: serving three community meals each week and hosting three “drop in” times a week in our community house. We’ve come to know all the names and some of the stories of the people on the margins in our area. It’s been a deep blessing!
