Hello, this is my BGI “Beat” blog for the Using the Social Web For Social Change class at Bainbridge Graduate Institute. For this beat, I’m focusing on the intersection of community economic development and religion, as they relate to local food systems, housing, and cooperatives. Here is my philosophy for creating this space:
I am building bridges to create compassionate, diverse communities. When we resolve conflicts, we strengthen our understanding of best practices toward collective well-being.
More to come…
I am an affordable housing developer and consultant. I build bridges to create compassionate, diverse communities. When we resolve conflicts, we strengthen our understanding of best practices toward collective well-being. I combine the value of inclusion with strategic planning, research skills that develop links from the seemingly unlinkable, and a passion for our interconnected lives to draft plans that succeed (photo by www.arnoldadler.com).

When I described your blog recently, I called it about it as “intersection of economic community development and faith” rather then religion. Was I incorrect and faith isn’t strong enough of a word?
While religion and faith can’t exactly be used interchangeably, I would say both are correct. I will discuss the intersection of community economic development and faith, and often the discussion of the faith component will include elements of religion. Religion, faith, and spirituality all impact approaches to economic development and can all become vehicles for building bridges to strengthen community.
