About "Organic Community"

Church consultant Joseph Myers argues that churches are too focused on running programs instead of facilitating community. In this book, he offers practical advice to pastors who want to turn their churches into community-shaping environments.
- Koorong

Community is a fundamental life search and one of the key aspects people look for in a congregation. But community can't be forced, controlled, or easily created. The problem, says Joseph R. Myers, is that churches are too focused on developing programs instead of concentrating on environments where community will spontaneously emerge.

Organic Community challenges key leaders to become environmentalists--people who create or shape environments. Outlining nine organizational tools for creating a healthy environment, Myers shows readers how to diagnose their current situation and implement patterns that will develop possibilities for healthy communities.

Where we should be
5 stars By Mal Green, Jun 23 2008
I can't help thinking that what this book talks about is closer to church-as-it-should-be and a long way from church-as-we-know-it.  As someone who has struggled with church-as-we-know-it, this book comes as a refreshing challenge for us to be more authentic in our following Jesus together.
It has been a catalyst for me to examine my own way of leading and relating to others in various structures in which I am a missionary.  It has motivated me to do things differently.
Myers does not give a recipe or prescription.  He simply suggests what it could be like and leaves the reader to respond.
But, his suggestions are not theories - they are the stories of someone who has "been there and done that" - both in church and in society.
A must read for people who want to follow Jesus together more authentically and effectively.
