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 Jan 10, 2018 7:00p – 8:30p On the Table with The Rev Sarah Person (The McKinstrey House 115 High Street Taunton MA) This month’s topic is “Will the New Tax Law Change How You Donate to Worthy Causes?”.
Researchers tell us that people at the lower end of the income scale and people at the higher end tend to give proportionally more of their income than folks in the middle. People at the higher end liked to give in part because they could get a break when they itemized their tax deductions. With the standardized deductions doubling under our new tax law, fewer people are going to itemize and that particular incentive will disappear. The only reward for making donations will be the satisfaction for doing so, and your commitment to support a particular religious institution or cause.
WE ARE PLANNING FOR 2018 – Please be in touch on Facebook with your suggestions. Thanks!!
