What we are reading: Community by Peter Block


Why you should read it? Peter Blocks' Community: The Structure of Belonging provides very specific examples and steps to take in how to form meaningful relationships and resilient communities. It is a book I will return to in my life-long journey to belong and support others to feel and be truly welcomed.

The key to creating or transforming community, then, is to see the power in the small but important elements of being with others. The shift we seek needs to be embodied in each invitation we make, each relationship we encounter, and each meeting we attend. For at the most operational and practical level, after all the thinking about policy, strategy, mission, and milestones, it gets down to this: How are we going to be when we gather together.
