We Believe Greater Things Are Possible

 


 

Join the VOTE COMMON GOOD BUS TOUR!
September 6 - November 6 we're barnstorming the nation, inviting people to vote for the common good.

Vote Common Good intends for Common Good Voters to send a message that changes Congress and improves the political climate in the United States.

 
 
 
 

Join Us at Upcoming Greater Things Events!

Learn how you can get involved, make connections, and make a difference in your community.

We empower the human spirit and foster life-giving community for a more beautiful, inclusive common good in faith and civic life.

Greater Things serves as a small hinge to open a big door leading to a better world for all.

Faith, belief and religion exert powerful influence on cultural assumptions and behavioral norms in the United States. And,  too many religious narratives far too often feed harmful and destructive mindsets, policies and practices.

Greater Things makes change by helping faith leaders and individuals leave behind the narratives of exclusion, violence, greed, sexism, exploitation and racism rooted in white supremacy, and embrace instead new narratives of reconciliation, inclusion, nonviolence, generosity, equality, and sustainability.

This change must begin by influencing the content and conversations within America's dominant religious community, Christianity.
