In Healing the Heart of Democracy, Parker Palmer quickens our instinct to seek the common good and gives us the tools to do it. This timely, courageous, and practical work – intensely personal as well as political – is not about them, “those people” in Washington D.C., or in our state capitals, on whom we blame our political problems. It’s about us, “We the People,” and what we can do in everyday settings like families, neighborhoods, classrooms, congregations, and workplaces to resist divide-and-conquer politics and restore a government “of the people, by the people, for the people.”
