A Tool to Build Up Communities
We see in the Bible that God delegates some of the responsibility for taking care of the world to us. We are created for and to do good works that God prepared in advance for us to do. We are to seek the welfare of all people including those in the community where we live and work. We are to bring God’s Kingdom, and the characteristics of that Kingdom, right now and right here on earth to those around us. We are to build up hearts of love and lives of shalom. We are to make the world a better place.
Therefore, at Good Place organizations, one of the main aims and success criteria is to build up Good Places in the community. Community Engagement is a specifically applied system that serves to build up Good Places in the communities where we work and live by the work that the organization does, the business we are in, the products and services we provide, the skills we build up by the work that we do, and the methods and tools the organization utilizes to build up Good Places. We look into the world where there are community problems that business could solve and/ or opportunities business could address, bringing Good Place to the community where we work and live through the work that we do to earn a living.
