Imagine a group of your friends gathering together in a home or on the beach in an informal setting, talking about teachings of a religion and why they’re important for the modern world.
Baha’is around the world, especially on college campuses, have had many of these gatherings to discuss things like world peace, equality of women and men, racism, and so many more topics that are important to defeat ignorance. Baha’is call these gatherings “firesides”—warm, informal gatherings and discussions about the Baha’i teachings:
The purpose of religion as revealed from the heaven of God’s holy Will is to establish unity and concord amongst the peoples of the world; make it not the cause of dissension and strife. – Baha’u’llah, Tablets of Baha’u’llah, p. 129.https://bahaiteachings.org/whats-bahai-fireside-anyway/
