GRAND HAVEN — Community-building that includes all segments of society will be at the heart of a conversation among residents from Muskegon and Ottawa counties with author and consultant Peter Block.
Block will spend an evening with Lakeshore residents from 5 to 8:30 p.m. March 12 at the Resurrection Life Church, 12900 West Olive south of Grand Haven. The church is on the corner of U.S. 31 and Lincoln Avenue.
A welcoming reception with the author of “Abundant Community” and “Community: The Structure of Belonging” will be from 5 to 6 p.m. That will be followed by a “participative workshop” from 6 to 8:30 p.m. The cost of the event is $10 and pre-event registration is required.
The theme of Community Conversations: Everyone’s Gifts Matter will drive the workshop activities. The event is sponsored by organizations in both Muskegon and Holland, including Disability Connections of West Michigan and Orchard View Community Education in Muskegon. A grant from the Michigan Disabilities Rights Coalition helped fund Block’s visit.
