A Community of Practice

The Center for Sharing is a community of practice: as such, we aspire to be servant led, trauma informed, compassion based. We are members of PAC, an association of partners in authentic community-other place-based, servant led communities of practice who seek to share their lives together while doing work they share, in service of nurturing a more loving and just society in that place.

Developing Servant Leaders

We seek to practically develop servant leaders through practicing the principles of hospitality with all who enter our space: 1) we welcome strangers 2) we evoke their gifts 3) we look for ways to put those gifts to work in service of the common good. Over time people trend in the direction of becoming healthier, wiser, freer, more able to take care of themselves, more likely to serve others as they have been served, whether as casual guests, or work-study employees in the Collegium Café.
