We have a choice, says Paul Born, between shallow or deep community life. Will we react to the instability of our times by defining ourselves selfishly or out of fear? Or will we deepen our experience of community, reaching out to others and building a life of joy? Using stories from his experience growing up among people displaced by war, insights from his career as a community activist, writer, and speaker, and the results of interviews with 500 people, Born shows how we can deepen community by:
  • Sharing our story: achieving unity by opening doors between us
  • Enjoying one another: spendingt time together, in person, often
  • Caring for one another: building a sense of belonging through mutual acts of care
  • Working together for a better world: sharing a belief that creates a benefit for all and that moves from a life of us/them to one of all of us, together
