The Cain and Abel streams have appeared in our times in the Freemasons and the Anthroposophical Society on the one hand, and in the Jesuits and The Christian Community on the other hand. Behind these two streams stand the individualities of Lazarus and John the Baptist who came together in a special way at the raising of Lazarus. Since then a third stream has become possible – what Rudolf Steiner called the Middle Stream. In many ways, our current time is marked by the wrestling to bring this stream into the world.

Aaron Mirkin was born in Scotland, but spent most of the first part of his life in South Africa. After completing a degree in Chemical Engineering, he worked two years in the petroleum industry and then two years in the film industry. Fortunately, he found anthroposophy when he was 25 and then worked for nine years as a biodynamic farmer at Camphill Village Alpha near Cape Town where he was married and had three children. Following a burnout and year’s sabbatical, he moved with the family to Germany for five years and completed the Christian Community priest’s training in Stuttgart. After ordination in 2001, he worked eight years in the Johannesburg congregation, and is currently in the Stroud congregation in England where he has been for the past 14 years.
