Publishers Description
With insight born of experience and conviction, The Carter Center's Gary Gunderson suggests ways that congregations, religious leaders, and concerned individuals can take practical steps to improve the health of their communities.

As governmental involvement in alleviating social problems wanes, Gunderson argues, congregations are uniquely positioned to "feed the roots" that build and sustain community life. Their commitment can make the difference in addressing such problems as violence, substance abuse, housing, nutrition, and public health. His book shows why congregations matter, how religious commitment helps people transcend the individualism of today's world, what singular powers religious persons can bring to their communities, and how parishes can train people in skills for knowledge-building and community-building. He then offers a model of what a congregation in the year 2010 might be doing to improve the health of its larger "neighborhood".

Eminently practical yet deeply religious, Gunderson's book will help people of faith nurture community life at its roots.

Reviews - What do customers think about Deeply Woven Roots: Improving the Quality of Life in Your Community?

Great book for congregational development  Dec 10, 2007
This book provides good language for congregational development. Gunderson argues that congregations are already doing vital but largely invisible work in our communities. Deeply Woven Roots takes us to the next step: making visible that invisible network of change agents. Gunderson's most striking practical suggestion is to make a map of connections in your congregation (p. 64). And then he tells us to look for the "patterns of need" in our communities. His mixture of stories, theology, and practicality provides a solid tool for lay leaders as well as pastors.
