Oklahoma City focuses on firesides

Oklahoma City (A) is trying a new approach for their latest cycle of the intensive program of growth:  A focus on firesides.  These gatherings are based on the skills learned in the institute process.
This is our 6th cycle of growth!  The area teaching committee has designed a special focus for this coming expansion phase:  we are going to focus on firesides.
Each fireside will be oriented around sharing a conversation like Anna in Ruhi Book 6, complemented by the familiar warm personal interaction of the fireside.
The key is that it is a place to invite contacts (and new Bahá’ís) to learn about the Faith, rather than simply being a social gathering of Bahá’ís.
So have a fireside at your own home and invite your neighbors, friends and co-workers.  If you need help with the presentation, contact anyone on the area teaching committee.
