Why a Center for Spiritual Practice?
Believing that we have much to learn from and to teach one another, Common Ground: Center for Spiritual Practice is an inclusive program vitally engaged with the wisdom and the practices of a variety of spiritual and faith traditions.
Who is Invited?
Our inclusivity is a form of hospitality and respect for the many ways in which humans are nourished spiritually, and an invitation for all to join, no matter what their tradition or how experienced they are in spiritual practice.
What Do We Long For?
We create, support, and sustain practices for individuals and groups in their search for meaning and purpose, wholeness and healing, commitment and community, contemplation and social action. Our engagement with a multitude of spiritual practices equips us to live deeper and fuller lives and to serve the wider world.

Wednesday Mar 28, 2018 6:30p – 8:00p On the Table with The Rev Sarah Person (The Parlor of First Unitarian Universalist Society of Middleboro, 25 South Main Street, Middleboro MA) This month’s topic is “Social Media: Boon or Bane?”.
“Social Networking: Boon or Bane?” On January 11, 2018, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook is moving “from focusing on helping you find relevant content to helping you have more meaningful social interactions.” We are in the middle of a social revolution. Social media have transformed our relationships in all walks of life from family members to nations to global economy. It’s a bit unclear what Zuckerberg’s new priorities will accomplish, but it’s clear that Facebook is seeking to have a different impact on our lives.
1. On the whole, do you think the way we use social media and networking is good for us, or bad? 2. Does using social media help you be at your best, or your worst? 3. What do you see in your future as a result of our nearly universal reliance on social media?
Good conversation to have with youth:
