Deepening Community explains that communities can rely on one another in times of economic and societal uncertainty. A supportive community has the ability to create a powerful source of closeness that can help its members move forward through the difficulties of life. Book shares examples of the deep intimacy found in community from author Paul Born's experience growing up among people displaced by war; his career as a community activist, writer, and speaker; and insights shared from interviews with over 500 people.
Book describes the four pillars of deep community:
- sharing our stories
- taking the time to enjoy one another
- taking care of one another
- working together for a better world
