Common Ground 

Spirituality Without Borders for Spiritually Independent People

The first and foremost goal of finding Common Ground is to make a difference in individual lives and the world community. 

 

Common Ground fosters the experience of an open and inclusive worldview as well as a spirituality that helps set a strong foundation for people to grow in healthy ways and experience life's journey at its best.

 

Finding Common Ground is an expansive, innovative and contemporary way to nurture body, mind and spirit

 

Common Ground is Spiritual, not Religious



As It Is

 

Common Ground met as spiritual community for more than 15 years until the Covid 19 Pandemic shifted almost everything in the world, including the ability for the Common Ground  community to come together on a regular basis.  

 

Now, after the extended period of lockdown, many things have changed.  Common Ground no longer has a dedicated place to meet, many congregants have experienced significant personal changes and hardships, some have relocated, others have suffered ill health and the consequences of age.  Consequently, these changes have resulted in the need to make difficult choices.

 

For the time being, there is no plan to reconvene regular gatherings.

 

Reverends Glenda and Judy are in deep prayer opening to guidance for what comes next.  Please join them in prayer.  Through collective prayer and meditation the perfect answers will be revealed in divine time and divine order.  Pray for the highest and best good for all concerned.

 

In the meantime, this site will remain open and active.  It will provide inspiration and a point of connection.  Common Ground has never been about just a building; but, rather has been about the consciousness and love that has sustained it through the years.

 

In essence, the Christian tradition tells us all things work together for the highest good for those who trust the power and presence of a loving and supportive God/Universe/Higher Power/Love.  This is a Truth that can be trusted.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Sacred Exhaustion

Excerpt from "The Way of Rest"

by Jeff Foster

 
Your tiredness has dignity to it!  Do not rush to pathologize it or push it away, for it may contain great intelligence, even medicine.
You have been on a long journey from the stars, friend. Bow before your tiredness now; do not fight it any longer.
There is no shame in admitting that you cannot go on.  Even the courageous need rest.
For a great journey lies ahead.  And you will need all your resources.
Come, sit by the fire of Presence.  Let the body unwind; drop into the silence here.  Forget about tomorrow, let go of the journey to come, and sink into the evening's warmth.  
Every great adventure is fueled by rest.
Your tiredness is noble, friend, and contains healing power ......if you would only listen.....
