Church-State Common Ground

A University of Pennsylvania research program has gathered together leading scholars and advocates representing strongly opposing views on today's most contentious church-state issues, not to forge a consensus, but to model how to disagree without being disagreeable, while identifying any unexpected common ground. Called Common Ground for Common Good, or C2G2, the group's co-chairpersons are Marci Hamilton and Stanley Carlson-Thies.

Communiter Bona Profundere Deum est

To pour forth benefits for the common good is divine

-Benjamin Franklin
