Thanks so much for posting this; I really needed to hear this message. What a beautifully unique view you've offered us today. I appreciate your taking a stand to spur us into action. Keep writing girl! You're awesome! Miss you!

i appreciate your post amy. i was also working at a federal govt. office on that day. i remember how hard it was for me to allow it to sink it - that it was really happening. Someone I worked with kept coming in and telling me that something very serious was going on but I just kept working for a while. Just like I do today when I withdrawal from something difficult, it seems like it just can't be happening even as it is. Lots of fear. So your words ring true, are moving, and helpful. I rejoice that we have a Lord who pursues us when we flee, who won't let us stay comfortable in retreat. thanks.


so beautifully written. although as a friend i have experienced the exact opposite of retreat from you. you have run to the suffering, to the difficult, and to prayer, prayer, prayer when there is crisis. this very weekend you did it again for us. thank you.

and thank you for your words.

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.
