Since September 11, 2001, Sharing Sacred Spaces has convened, connected, and
accompanied religious congregations in building local, sustainable interreligious communities
that stand the test of time and work together for peace and civic change.
Developed by architect Suzanne Morgan, Sharing Sacred Spaces began as an interfaith prayer space in downtown Chicago called the Upper Room. Today, Sharing Sacred Spaces is expanding its programmatic reach nationally and internationally to explore the architectural meaning of sacred space in service to interreligious community building. Sharing Sacred Spaces is also translating our proven effective community-building model in service of building relatedness, trust, and community change in schools, colleges, and other organizations.
I offer you peace. I offer you love. I offer you friendship. I see your beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings.
My wisdom flows from the Highest Source. I salute that Source in you. Let us work together for unity and peace.
We use the vehicles of architecture, education, dialogue, and hospitality to bring people together across the spectrum of difference
into model communities of caring, trust,
friendship, and action.
All people experience belonging and the power to make a difference across the shared space of our planet.
We dare to do things creatively and differently
We trust in the goodness and power of people
We stand for the inherent worth of all people
We uphold a foundation of dialogue
We strive for all people to feel safe and welcome
