Community Building

Share via:

How hard is it to build community?   What’s involved?  Is it just a matter of using a strategy, unrolling a game plan?  Uhhhhh…no.  Peter Block says it in a very elegant way:

“What makes community building so complex is that it occurs in an infinite number of small steps, sometimes in quiet moments that we notice out of the corner of our eye.  It calls for us to treat as important many things that we thought were incidental.  An afterthought becomes the point; a comment made in passing defines who we are more than all that came before (Community: The Structure of Belonging, p. 9).”
