Fifties Fellowship

Reruns of “I Love Lucy” and “Leave It to Beaver” taught the founders of Fifties Fellowship that love is not without trials but it always overcomes with humor. Adapting the Manhattan apartment and suburban lifestyles of an idealized fifties was not driven by nostalgia but by their genuine expositions of the human condition, which isn’t dependent on out-of-date gender roles or hairstyles, the founders taught. Sharing these teachings required a certain investment but the founders bore this more easily by incorporating as a church. Today, the Fellowship is a place to share a cup, watch black-and-white TVs, and discuss the foibles and fantasies of the fifties.
