The Birth of a Global Community: Appreciative Inquiry in Action


Birth of a Global Community: Appreciate Inquiry in Action (Lakeshore Communications, 2003) By Charles Gibbs & Sally Mahé. The story of the birth of the United Religions Initiative (URI) is about the birth of a vision, and about a bishop who invited the whole world to join him on an inconceivable quest to make that vision real—to encourage religions to stop fighting; to make peace with one another; and to build together a world of peace, justice, and healing. It is also the story of how Appreciative Inquiry (AI), an in inclusive philosophy and methodology, “facilitated the birth of a global interfaith organization with the potential to change human history.” To order, send money order or check in amount of $20 to following address: United Religions Initiative, PO Box 29242, San Francisco, CA 94129.
