The fundamentals of every Christian community

“When we are dreaming alone, it remains merely a dream, when we are dreaming the same dream together, it is the beginning of a new reality”

The House of Stillness wants to offer a place where Christian life can flurish. We live with a pronounced love of the world in the here and now. We see it as our duty to reconsider all laws coming from governments and churches (including our Roman Catholic Church) with respect to the Gospel. Everyone who does this will quickly notice that some of these rulings are inconsistent with the Gospel.

We want to develop our Christian life in a specific manner. Our approach is to devote ourselves particularly to meditation and working with youth.

As a Christian community we are committed to the following:

- living as a community
- celebration, proclamation, and living of our faith
- support of the poor
