The Cost of Community: Jesus, St. Francis and Life in the Kingdom

“Blessed are the poor in spirit...” So begins the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus’ great message to everyone with ears to hear. St. Francis of Assisi heard its message and challenged the church and empire of his day. 

Jamie Arpin-Ricci and his friends and neighbors in the new monastic community of
Little Flowers in urban Winnipeg likewise heard Jesus’ message and ordered their lives around it. This book is Jamie’s field report, offering surprising insights about what life together in the spirit of Jesus’ teachings offers us, and what it demands of us.

 Jamie Arpin-Ricci is an urban missionary, pastor, and writer living in Winnipeg’s inner-city West End neighborhood. He is founding co-director of Youth With A Mission (YWAM) Urban Ministries Winnipeg with his wife, Kim.
