Abstract

This thesis was born out of questions raised in a New Church Development setting about how best, if at all, to develop a piece of property. The community of goods passages, located in Acts 2: 42-47 and Acts 4:32-35, formed the theological foundation. Three congregations were visited and subjects interviewed in each setting. These settings all combined housing for senior citizens with a church sanctuary, so that the needs of the worshipping community, and the particular needs of a segment ofthe larger community could both be met. The assumption was made that Faith United, as the New Church development project is now called, might opt to erect something similar.
