The Borough Common
Sun, April 2, 2017, 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM BST
The Borough Common is a home for richer conversations.
We gather over brunch each month in Camberwell to take on a topic together, with two simple intentions: we want to nurture our spiritual growth and make the world a bit better.
Everyone is welcome.
We appreciate RSVPs through this page so we know how much breakfast to prepare.
What to expect
A simple continental brunch with good people, and a topic to take on together. A host will frame the conversation to get things going - perhaps sharing a poem, an idea, or a piece of old wisdom.
2nd April 2017: Finding Solid Ground. When things are chaotic or uncertain, where can we find our own solid ground? How do we foster resilience? What sources of strength can we draw on? How do we thrive as society shifts?
The need for richer conversations
We live in a changing world that feels increasingly fragmented. As we are facing a whole host of challenges, there is no shortage of opinions. But straightforward answers often feel insufficient.
In that context, The Borough Common has spent 7½ years being a place for those who want to gather and explore what it means to live well – those looking for spiritual and emotional growth (in many forms) and to do good in a meaningful way.
It started as a church experiment in 2009. We don't pretend to have answers, but we are a home for richer conversations, which to us means:
- We value conversations rooted in reality that orientate us towards the practical
- We value conversations that include the wisdom of spiritual traditions
- We value conversations that point us towards hopeful possibilities – looking for a society that works
- We value conversations that foster ongoing connection – relationships are the root of change
- We value different voices – views can be valued even (especially?) when we disagree
- We value conversations that are alive – good company and stimulating ideas bring energy and life
