Finding Common Ground

CBS News Religion & Culture produced a video that looks at the history of the "Finding Common Ground" movement and what interreligious cooperation looks like in Reading, Pennsylvania. I did not see the video when it was first released, but a friend shared it with me. It is a helpful report about interreligious dialogue and cooperation. The Jefferson City religious community is in the early stages for creating a faith-based organization called "Jefferson City Congregations Uniting." I am currently serving as a member of the board for the new "Missouri Faith Voices." This statewide network of religious leaders provides an opportunity for faith leaders and congregations to work together to solve community and statewide problems.
