In this heartfelt and thoughtful book, Christopher Heuertz writes of the dangers of isolation, the challenges we face when we join together and the struggles and joys that emerge from genuine community bonding.Unexpected Gifts explores the inevitable challenges-failure, betrayal, doubt, grief, restlessness, ingratitude-that friendships, relationships, and communities eventually face, challenges that often become reasons why people leave. Heuertz contends that if people stay and work through these difficulties, they can become something more, even beautiful. Whether readers are forming a new community, searching for deeper community, or participating in a long-time community, they will find inspiration, caution, guidance, and encouragement as they discover the beauty of pressing in to the ambiguities of growing relationships in this tender and honest testimony about how we are "woven together by grace."
