Many thanks for these poignant dispatches from another place. Brings much needed perspective & exhortation to those of us who experience life mostly in peace [political, if not always spiritual!]. I look forward to reading many more.

Thank you for the kind words. It's odd, there's an honesty about working with soldiers who acknowlege that they are broken people and this is a broken world that almost makes ministry here more rewarding. It's difficult to describe, but they don't suffer any illusions that all is right with them and the world.

Welcome to CGO

  • Welcome to Common Grounds Online. Readers of Common Grounds have suggested a website to continue the explorations they began in the book. In keeping with the interactions of Professor MacGregor, Brad, Lauren and Jarrod, the theme of this site is ‘learning and living the Christian story.’

    I have invited friends, and a few friends of friends, to communicate aspects of the Christian story that have been significant in their own lives. We’re all trying to find joy and pleasure in this life and the next, but often we forfeit the joy that could be ours by living out foolish, competing scripts. What distinguishes Common Grounds Online Contributors is not our own goodness, achievement or service, but rather the recognition of our need of God’s grace abounding in our lives.
