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 through: - Telling our story: achieving unity by opening doors between us - Enjoying one another: finding ways to spend 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

Community shapes our identity, quenches our thirst for belonging, and bolsters our physical, mental, emotional, and economic health. But in the chaos of modern life, community ties have become unraveled, leaving many feeling afraid or alone in the crowd, grasping at shallow substitutes for true community. In this thoughtful and moving book, Paul Born describes the four pillars of deep community: sharing our stories, taking the time to enjoy one another, taking care of one another, and working together for a better world. To show the role each of these plays, he shares his own stories-as a child of refugees and as a longtime community activist. It´s up to us to create community. Born shows that the opportunity is right in front of us if we have the courage and conviction to pursue it. ungekürzt. Language: English.
