Product Description

Every church, every organization, has experienced them: betrayal, deception, grumbling, envy, exclusion. They make life together difficult and prevent congregations from developing the skills, virtues, and practices they need to nurture sturdy, life-giving communities.

In Living into Community: Cultivating Practices that Sustain Us Christine Pohl explores four specific Christian practices--gratitude, promise-keeping, truth-telling, and hospitality--that can counteract those destructive forces and help churches and individuals build and sustain vibrant communities. Drawing on a wealth of personal and professional experience and interacting with the biblical, historical, and moral traditions, Pohl thoughtfully discusses each practice, including its possible complications and deformations, and points to how these essential practices can be better cultivated within communities and families.

Endorsements

Marva J. Dawn author of Truly the Community "Every Christian should read this provocative book! Christine thoroughly delineates the interlocking relationships and dangerous deformities of practices that could deepen our communities but often destroy them. This volume is pertinent to our families, churches, even places of work.
Marva J. Dawn
author of Truly the Community

Christine Pohl was writing about community before it was hip. So now she is cutting edge. We read her stuff when we were starting our community over 10 years ago, and it felt like she was reading our minds. Now her writing almost romantically reminds us of why we do the stuff we do. This book is great for those who are veterans of community and for those who are curious or even skeptics. Christine reminds us that we are created for, and in the image of, community -- but that doesn't mean it comes easy. This book is about the holy habits we need to cultivate if we are to experience and sustain real community. She is a wise scholar of community, but she's also sort of a community groupie--of the best sort--she knows all the cool 'bands' and has some amazing stories to tell. This new book is a gift to all of us who are longing to know that we are not alone in the world.
-Shane Claiborne,
author and activist, and co-founder of The Simple Way (www.thesimpleway.org)

    This principles in this book are easily applicable to any relationship, not just church as a whole. Pohl explains in loving, painstaking detail the nature of conflict and the actual human responses and the ideal to which we as Christians should aspire. Lots of "a-ha" moments to be had. The font that the book is printed in could be bolder if not a little larger. This is the only thing I would change.
