Multifaith & Spirituality

As our mission states, “We value many spiritual paths.  We welcome and embrace people of all beliefs and cultures.”  Common Street is a pluralist community where multiple faiths are celebrated and multiple forms of spirituality are practices. 

At Common Street, we host and/or facilitate:

  • A Monday night Buddhist Meditation and Study Group led by volunteers
  • A Muslim Sunday School
  • Collaborations with Rabbi Katy Allen of Ma’yan Tikva on Jewish programs
  • Sufi Dances
  • Kirtan Chant
  • Equinox and Solstice Services
  • Sunday Circle

Rev. Dr. Ian Mevorach, the spiritual leader of the Common Street Spiritual Center, is an ordained American Baptist minister who is also a student of many of the world’s religions; his areas of expertise are in interfaith dialogue and ecological theology.  He caught the vision of an interfaith spiritual community from Howard Thurman, founder of the first interracial and interfaith church in 1950’s San Francisco.
