Learning Alliances

I’ve been thinking about how community and organization are intertwined, especially when they are interdependent like they are in churches, synagogues, or mission-driven organizations like Amnesty International. Community and organization are different social entities that represent different ways of participating in our human world. The two interact and we switch back and forth between an organizational and community view often without noticing.

Community

Viv Mcwaters

It is in discovering community that I feel most fortunate, most blessed, most thankful.

In a way, this small community has grown out of other communities: open space technology, applied improv and facilitation. When I think of community, I usually think of these larger groups.
