The Word and the Common Good

The Word and the Common Good is a short course for groups of Christians wanting to explore together their calling in their community. Consisting of six 45-minute sessions exploring the Common Good in the Bible, it includes scripture passages, reflections, discussion questions and prayers. 

The material is easy to use and free to download. The sessions work for face-to-face gatherings or online. You may like to use our daily Examen prayer within and alongside the sessions.

The content of the sessions is adapted from our popular bible study booklet Calling People of Goodwill.

The Word and the Common Good is a standalone course but also forms Part One of our three-part Here: Now: Us People journey.
