The Fireside Fellowship

Finding a Better, More Meaningful Life

 

The Fireside Fellowship

“The activity of God is everywhere and always present, but it is visible only to the eye of faith.”
    —Father Jean Pierre de Caussade, author (from Abandonment to Divine Providence)

 

Fellowship

 

Do You See What I See? Discovering the Obvious by Robert HanleyTHE FIRESIDE FELLOWSHIP was created by Robert Hanley as a spiritual supplement to his book Do You See What I See? Discovering the Obvious which is about finding a better, more meaningful life.

THE MISSION of The Fireside Fellowship is to enable people to recognize Judeo-Christian principles in everyday experiences and apply them to their lives.

THE PURPOSE of these discussion meetings is to provide an atmosphere and agenda that offer people an opportunity to share their everyday experiences, feelings and faith as they pertain to pertinent universal  topics, e.g., Gratitude, Coincidence, Humor, Work, Balance, Goodness, Values, Peace, Friendship, Perseverance, Failure . . . Focus is on discovering useful, valuable insights in everyday life that seem to float past the observations of most people.   

By offering practical and spiritual perspectives, the Fellowship hopes to effect a positive change in the life and faith of each person.

The Fireside Fellowship is open to people of all faiths at every stage of life. “(For) whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.” (Mark 3:35)

“Over time, I recognized that the richest thoughts of the wisest men and women, from eons ago
and right up to today, provided a perfect match to what it was I was experiencing in my own life, be it at
a gas station, a television studio, the restaurant around the corner . . . anywhere. And at the risk of
sounding like a religious zealot, I came to think faith and spirituality were a part of this, too.”

Testimonials

 

The Fireside Fellowship Members


THIS IS WHAT I GET OUT OF THE FIRESIDE FELLOWSHIP MEETINGS:

Mary P. – “I look forward to The Fireside Fellowship each month. It affords me the opportunity to get to know and become closer friends with people that I see at Mass on Sundays. The topics are always interesting. I like knowing that I and others can share our thoughts, experiences, opinions, feelings, and ideas in a safe place without being criticized or judged. I also never leave without feeling inspired.”

Marina – “People all have hopes, dreams, problems, and aspirations; we are all looking for deeper meaning in our lives and a closer relationship with God through our own individual passions and interests. Meeting people with the same struggles as me has been uplifting, comforting, and inspiring.”

Judy – “I look forward to the first Wednesday of each month because of The Fireside Fellowship! It is such a warm, welcoming group of fun and interesting people. I enjoy exploring the very pertinent topics as they apply to everyday life.  ‘Balance’ was one of my favorites. What I like best though is that it’s open to everyone. I’m grateful that OLG has started this Fellowship!”

Christine Y – “Fellowship in the true sense; Friendship with a variety of peoples; Enjoyment of warm camaraderie in a relaxed atmosphere; Love of God which is shared by all; Laughter as a means of drawing us closer; Oneness with all present; Witnessing God’s love in each other; Sharing of our minds and hearts; Hope for a more enriched life; Inspiration on how to serve God better; Prayers to strengthen our faith.”

Duffy – “The Fireside Fellowship is indeed a fellowship. I look forward to the monthly meetings because they are structured in such a way that everyone has an opportunity to participate. This friendly, open nature permits a wide variety of opinion, observation, and faith sharing. I think everyone’s outlook has been expanded and colored with a bright new brush.  I know mine has.”

Jennifer – “I find it comforting to experience similarities to others as I journey along my own spiritual path. At times I wonder if I’m praying or seeking correctly, or applying the best beneficial practices to my everyday life. I find The Fireside Fellowship to be rejuvenating and empowering.”

Shelley E. – “I truly look forward to the first Wednesday of each month when each of us shares our thoughts and experiences with others. I leave each meeting with the knowledge that we all have much more in common than we have dissimilarities. I am especially appreciative of the various subject matters, to which I usually give little or no attention until our meetings. The Fireside Fellowship, with Robert’s guidance, provides a wonderful and comfortable opportunity to share and discuss thoughts and personal experiences without ever feeling judged.”

Jonathon F. – “I thoroughly enjoyed taking part in The Fireside Fellowship and found the meetings to really help me in my walk. A lot of wisdom in this room, and I am looking forward to the next get together.”

You are cordially invited to stop by anytime for a visit. People do, every month!
