Common Life Community Annual Gathering 2012

Feb 3 – Feb 4, 2012

Fri 2:00 PM – Sat 4:00 PM


“It is here in the Common Life community that I am challenged and supported to examine and adjust my spiritual practice and my engagement in the world.” Common Life memberCommon Life members and those interested in joining Common Life, gather annually to build community through sharing, worship and celebration of life.

This year we will be inspired by several Skype dialogues with Sabbath Economics theologian Ched Myers who says:

“It is my conviction that the First World church can only be renewed by rediscovering its witness to God’s dream of the Peaceable Kingdom and justice for all. . . I believe that the Judeo-Christian sacred story is an older, deeper and wiser tradition that has the power to transform our lives and our history – but only if we can overcome its domestication under the dominant culture.”

Common Life is a Tatamagouche Centre-sponsored program, whose goal is to build a common life among participants so that they can be challenged and supported to live a healing life in the church and the world. Local groups, which include people of various denominations and no denominations, meet regularly in local areas to reflect on their engagement with five areas of commitment: • Engagement for Justice, • Attending to the Spirit, • Dedication to Learning, • Commitment to Community and • Retreat.

For further information, please go to the Common Life info page. You can also email Common Life Coordinators Wilf Bean and Kathryn Anderson who are available to support you in forming a Common Life group in your area.

Program Cost: $95 ( $15 tuition + $80 meals/accommodations)
