We are constantly searching for community-minded people who want to be committed to including others in their lives. We aim to inspire and enable these threads of connection, camaraderie and friendship. If you would like to explore the possibility of offering friendship to others who are excluded and are struggling to find their place to belong, contact us.
If you have any insights to share about how belonging and inclusion can be developed or facilitated for people please share these with us, contact us. The most precious resource we have for coping with life in an unstable, discontinuous and revolutionary world is not information but each other. It contains some of the story of A Place to Belong, some relevant literature about belonging and a range of models and strategies that anyone can use. A Place to Belong regretfully provides the following update on Penny Barringham critically injured last week.

Individual and Social Transformation. Charles Anderson was a convict in the early settlement of Sydney. An orphan, he had joined the British navy at 9 years of age. On active service he was wounded in the head and suffered irreversible brain damage. When under stress or under the effect of alcohol he could become violent and hostile.
At 18 he was sentenced to 7 years in Australia for burglary. Landing in Sydney, Anderson was so resentful for what was happening to him that the authorities deemed it appropriate to isolate him on Goat Island — a rock in Sydney Harbour. He spent two years exposed to the elements and tethered to a chain on the rock. His food was put on a rock and pushed at him with a pole. Sydney colonists found it amusing to row up to the rock and throw food and offal at him, and watch him eat.
The Governor became ashamed of what was happening and had Anderson sent to Port Macquarie. He escaped and joined an aboriginal tribe, was recaptured and severely flogged. He then committed a serious crime hoping to be hanged. Instead the authorities sent him to Norfolk Island. A new commandant — Alexander Maconochie — had recently taken charge of the Norfolk Island penal settlement. Significantly affected by some associates who were Quakers he was attempting to work out a less punitive approach to running a penal colony — offering rewards for good conduct rather than punishment for bad. His therapy for Anderson was simple — he gave the man some responsibilities by putting him in charge of some bullocks and let him stay with the animals out of range of the barracks to save him being taunted by the other convicts.
Anderson tamed the bullocks successfully and was soon being congratulated and spoken kindly to. Then he was given the job of helping to manage a signal station which he did with scrupulous care. Through our contemporary eyes we can perceive that Anderson probably experienced learning impairments and Acquired Brain Injury.

Please try again later. Ordered for our library and haven't read the book. It has been used for a book study and the people who used like it. One person found this helpful. This book is very inspirational! Most books written by women for women seem to lack something, and that something is usually a transparency that we women need from other women. When we want to connect we want to do that on a deep emotional level but also feel safe when doing so - if we feel threatened or that what we say will get us judged or worse, spread around - then women can't and won't open up and feel like they belong.
When you open this book you'll find yourself face to face with the author's transparency of a huge child hood secret that she finally knew God wanted her to acknowledge and let Him carry her pain, guilt, anguish, everything and through that process she had to let others in, not superficially, but heart and soul and mind. Whether your secret is being promiscuous in the past, having an abortion, or something even as seemingly as insignificant as lying to someone we all have secrets and we all long to belong - especially to a God who longs for us to come to Him, accept His Son and His love no matter how imperfect we are.
Let's quit being afraid to share ourselves and in the end maybe even help someone else with a trial in their life, lets have companionship without the fear of judging or losing a friend. That doesn't meant that you'll get away with living in sin but it does mean that your past is past and a group of women are out there to help you heal and help find ultimate healing through the Saviour. So open up A Place to Belong and begin a life changing adventure with other women and with the Lord.
A Place To Belong
I really enjoyed A Place to Belong: As a woman who has few friends this book felt like a friend to me. As I was reading it I did feel accepted, affirmed, called to accountability and action.
I've said for years that true fellowship can only happen where there is true transparency. I feel this is were the church is lacking today. I feel people want to be accepted so much that they fear the judgment of others so they live a pretend life to have the illusion of acceptance. Once we as a church STOP comparing ones walk with another, actually offering encouragement and support, instead of gossip, rules and withdrawal, we will see true fellowship and church growth.
Wallowing in the past doesn't help anyone, it certainly doesn't make one more "holy". God is gracious to forgive, heal and forget, and we need to do the same.
