Craving Connection: 30 Challenges for Real-Life Engagement by The (In)courage Community is a great resource for those who are seeking to break out of isolation and into deeper community. In particular, out of the isolation of a self-sufficient life and into deeper community with God; out of the isolation of surface-level friendships and into deeper community with friends; out of the isolation of a social bubble and into deeper community with the greater-community around you.
The challenges in the book are more than 30 “mini-adventures” but 30 challenges that engage many of the heart reasons that prevent us from forming the meaningful relationships for which God created us. Though the book was written by women for women, the principles of the book – specifically the challenges that address the heart-level issues – cross the “gender lines.”
