Many communities in todays world have been wounded or disconnected in some way from society. Most need and want to change their situations, but are not sure how to do so.
Journeys of Courage is filled with powerful, real-life accounts of communities that experienced difficult or violent situations, and explorations of the ways they undertook their healing processes. These are stories of real people within real communities, ranging from the people affected by the devastating losses of September 11th to the survivors of trauma in Northern Ireland. They vividly demonstrate what has worked for different kinds of communities. These stories can encourage us to move ahead by telling us personal truths about what has worked before, what has failed, what we can try ourselves and what to avoid.
The sequel to Finding Courage, this book has much to offer everyone, from social change activists to people who are struggling with problems in their families, their churches or their local communities.
