The call of God has both an inward and an outward dynamic. In hearing this call Contemplative Fire seeks to enable those who walk with us to discern and respond to its implications for our lives, both as individuals and as a community. This is provided for through our gatherings in small and large groups; through training, retreats and pilgrimages; and through exploration of the challenge presented by the call to compassionate action.
Silence and solitude become precursors to loving and self-giving service. We are drawn to cross new thresholds of mission, culture and our own experience in order to encounter Christ in a new paradigm.
