Exploratory Reading Guide
Belonging is a topic that crosses boundaries and impacts each of our lives and communities. We all long to belong, but sometimes we struggle to know what that actually means for us in our daily lives.
In response to the needs of our communities and through discussions in our research hub on belonging, the PFFC put together a reading guide that walks through three books and poses questions to help the reader explore the texts and the idea of belonging more deeply.
Looking at belonging through the lens of Christian community with Bonhoeffer, diving into the science-based research on belonging with Cohen, and striving to cultivate belonging in our organizations with Birmingham and Simard, we gain a richer understanding of what belonging is and what it can look like in our lives, churches, organizations, and communities.
We offer this as a free resource to support individuals and communities who are exploring the fabric and structure of belonging. If you would like to follow the conversation and receive updates about additional resources, you can join our learning community here.
