Reconnecting our Communities

Posted on November 23, 2007. Filed under: Community |

Reconnecting community is really touching my heart lately. I have been working with the League of Women Voters on a voting project, the first step to participating in community. I have been working on creating a Young Nonprofit Professionals Network (YNPN) to connect individuals working for social change. And I have been working on strategic planning efforts to help my church become better stewards and have a better plan for connecting and revitalizing communities in the U.S., Cambodia, India, and Zambia.

During my time in Africa I hope to observe community efforts first hand and bring some new ideas back the States!

When I return I hope to write a series of posts about reconnecting our communities. I say reconnecting communities instead of community development, they are different. Community development is about creating the infrastructure for communities to thrive, while I want to speak more to sustainability through helping our neighbors and working together in the community. It is about the heart, not about our buildings.

I will be back on December 10th. Look for some new posts soon after!
