CommonSpirit Sacred Stories

As CommonSpirit Health, we make the healing presence of God known in our world by improving the health of the people we serve, especially those who are vulnerable, while we advance social justice for all.

Sacred Stories convey ways our mission is being lived out by the gifted people in our ministry. We invite you to use these stories for inspiration, as a meeting reflection, or to encourage discussion with your team. These stories are about the moments when the people of CommonSpirit Health find deeper meaning in their daily work. There are stories about feeling a strong connection between personal values and those of CommonSpirit. Others are about moments when the unique spirituality of our work place makes a difference for a patient or colleague. Still others are about feeling your hands being used to do God’s work in caring for another person.

All of us in this ministry experience these moments – perhaps not very often or for very long. But, these moments in which our ordinary, everyday work suddenly touches on something deeply meaningful and extraordinary are unforgettable. And, they are worth sharing – to inspire, comfort and reassure others.
