What is Common Ground?
Common Ground is a concept that has at its core, these words of Abdu’l-Bahá: “Likewise, when you meet those whose opinions differ from your own, do not turn away your face from them. All are seeking truth, and there are many roads leading thereto. Truth has many aspects, but it remains always and forever one. Do not allow difference of opinion, or diversity of thought to separate you from your fellow-men, or to be the cause of dispute, hatred and strife in your hearts. Rather, search diligently for the truth and make all men your friends.” — Abdu’l-Bahá, Paris Talks, p. 53

It is also a working group aimed at creating an active and participatory venue for discussion & communication, resource sharing, consultation, teaching, study, & community-building for anyone interested in finding common ground in the areas of faith and reason, science and religion.
