9780060663377: The new community

Real community cannot exist on its own; it can exist only in relationship to the world. Anyone wanting the kind of community that seeks to engage and be engaged by society will find helpful guidance in these stories and teachings. First published in 1976, The New Community is relevant still today. “The painful, fearful, wonderful message of the modern world,” Elizabeth O’Connor writes, “is that we are members one of the other, and that we cannot live if we are not in communion with each other.” 

Drawing upon her experiences as a member of The Church of the Saviour in Washington, DC, in the years before it became a “scattered church” of multiple small faith communities, Elizabeth O’Connor writes of events in the church’s life and neighborhood almost as parables. Through stories of loss and redemption, struggle and movement, she illustrates what it looks like when ordinary people try to connect meaningfully with others and work together for change. 

Anyone longing for a more compassionate and just society, to see it manifest here and now, will find in The New Community a compelling call to find a few others and begin to build it in tangible ways, together.
