INTERVIEW

Weaving a community's roots: an interview with Gary Gunderson of the Carter Center

Churches advance health.

Geraldine Schiering: Your book has a terrific title—Deeply Woven Roots: Improving the Quality of Life in Your Community (Minneapolis: Fortress Press, 1997). Give me a brief book report.

Gary Gunderson: The book was written primarily for secular agencies that don't know anything about religious congregations. It outlines eight basic strengths of congregations upon which you can build programs and collaborations. They are the strength to accompany, to convene, to connect, to tell stories, to give sanctuary, to bless, to pray, and to endure.
