Bishop John Shelby Spong ~ June 16, 1931 – September 12, 2021
Bishop Spong provided a much needed place for those of us who did not connect with traditional theology. We love you Bishop Spong. You will be missed! Funeral services will be held at St. Peter’s, Morristown, NJ and at St. Paul’s, Richmond, VA. Dates and times will be announced as soon as they are available

Local Groups

Creating Sacred Community is committed to helping people move forward in their spiritual journey.  Often, part of that process is connecting with other people to share ideas, encourage one another, and nourish each other on a deeper level than most of us find in our regular lives.  If you can’t find this type of sacred, intentional community in your area, start your own.
