The name of this blog, Rainbow Juice, is intentional.
The rainbow signifies unity from diversity. It is holistic. The arch suggests the idea of looking at the over-arching concepts: the big picture. To create a rainbow requires air, fire (the sun) and water (raindrops) and us to see it from the earth.
Juice suggests an extract; hence rainbow juice is extracting the elements from the rainbow, translating them and making them accessible to us. Juice also refreshes us and here it symbolises our nutritional quest for understanding, compassion and enlightenment.

  1. Bruce, I am Alice from Zambia, thank you for your comment on Theory and Practice of Dialogical Community Development (A Review). I have always worked in and with communities as a Minister of the Gospel. My current work requires me to work with the community from an informed perspective (one who has done professional community development and social justice). Where can I get the book and would you share resources on social justice and community development?

    1. Hi Alice. re the book, all I can suggest is trying places like Book Depository, Amazon etc. I'm afraid that I do not have any resources available to share other than the thoughts, ideas and experience that I post on this blogsite. I'm sorry that I cannot be of more assistance than that. Best wishes in your work.
