Summary: In a world where challenges are pressing and often overwhelming, how can we kindle a sense of hope that we can make a difference and create a positive future for all of us? When more and more people seem to be looking out for themselves and their own kind, how do we nourish the human potential for generosity and concern for the common good? Where life seems to grow ever more fragmented and isolating, how can we connect with others and re-create a sense of a just and moreloving community?

In the years since Common Fire was published, it has offered hopeful answers to these questions for thousands of people. Many have read and reflected on the book alone, wishing they might talk with others about it. The book affords a unique opportunity for groups who wish to refresh their hope, purpose and commitments.

This guide is designed for leaders of groups in Unitarian Universalist congregations working with the text of Common Fire. We hope that the discussions that emerge will touch the heart, inform the mind, and build a sense of companionship for shared work. And we hope that those who share a spiritual vocabulary as well as those who are uncomfortable with spiritual language will find common ground here in the search for more meaningful lives and work.

The main goal of this program is to engage the participants in a productive, reflective dialogue about purpose and meaning in their lives, particularly about how they can care more fully for the common good. In addition, it is our hope that the dialogues will foster greater commitments within congregations, help to create a "common space" in congregations that is more diverse and inclusive, and inspire participants as they develop workable strategies for practicing commitment. less
