Wild West Midlands​

​​While living in Birmingham, UK I heard about an intensely hidden enclave living out the American Wild West and set out to wrangle myself an invitation. I first met them in a small social club in Rubery on the outskirts of Birmingham in October 2005 and was to join them as they spent weekends at various social clubs in small towns in the Midlands. Pistols in holsters, rifles, cowboy buckles, and moonshine dressed as mountaineers, cowboys trappers, sheriffs, Mexicans, American Indians. I met Tex, Bronco, Trucker, Trapper and the Dutchess who met in undisclosed social clubs every weekend. Eventually getting to visit some of these folks in their home I discovered that the seriousness of their acitivity in the social setting of the weekend carried over into their daily lives.

A Colony for Haven ​

In an old Victorian mansion called the Cornerstone in the Midlands, UK, a very large family of 25 lived together; former homeless, drug addicts, professionals, elderly, lots of children and several Christian refugees from Iran and Iraq. They worshipped, shared all finances, with strict rules to obey the Lord, and to take as little part in the British society as possible. The Jesus Army was by the time I befriended them, the fastest growing religious sect in the UK.
