posted by

My phone rang around 4:30 yesterday afternoon, just as I had finished washing a sink full of dishes. I looked at the caller I.D. and smiled. I tapped the “answer” button and said, “Allah’u’Abha!” It was my Baha’i Mentor from […]

posted by

You folks did an excellent job for this post and in case you haven’t already figured it out, your overwhelming response to “Part 1″ is “Part 2.” The variety of thought here on the matter of apostasy and blasphemy is so great […]

The Agony of Identity

Who am I? I suppose an alternative name for June is “Identity.” All of us ask this question, to ourselves and others, at least once in our lives. This seemingly innocuous, simplistic question is fundamental, and yet produces some of […]

A Gift to my Mentor: Update

posted by

Ushta te, everyone, and good morning. Remember the post toward the end of last month entitled “A Gift to my Mentor“? At the conclusion of each month, my World Religions instructor asks me to present a summary of the faith I […]

A Gift to my Mentor

posted by

I had no intentions of making an entry today. Honestly, I’m worn out. I gave two talks today at two colleges about Project Conversion and my Zoroastrian month begins in a little under three hours. But something amazing happened this […]

Baha’i: Conclusion

posted by

Here it is, my humble attempt to recap my month with the Baha’i Faith. My words, nor this footage, suffice to describe the experience I’ve had. The lessons I’ve learned, friends I’ve gained, and wisdom I’ve gleaned will last a lifetime. Please […]

Baha’i Week 4: Lessons for the Future

posted by

Project Conversion is a dynamic process, and it seems like changes are occurring every second. Indeed, to adopt a faith for a month–to drape oneself in the garments of a brand new perspective–is a dramatic metamorphosis. The only question is, what […]

The Last Study Circle

posted by

Yeah, yeah I know. In the last post I promised to talk about changes I might include going forward with Project Conversion, but I thought you folks would be interested in the events of last evening. They were special because […]

Wrapping up Social Issues Week

posted by

I’ll be honest, this has been one of the hardest weeks of Project Conversion thus far. This month in and of itself is filled with learning curves, lessons learned, and unexpected realizations (more on that next week), but the emotional […]

Baha’i Week 2: A Culture of Service

posted by

One aspect of religion and faith that is at the core of many institutions is that of service. The Baha’i Faith is no exception. In fact, service and community involvement rests at the core of Baha’i values–not as a front for […]

Baha’i/Day 5: History and Faith

You’ve all been very patient, and as a reward…an IOU for something awesome should we ever meet. Anyway, today I want to go over some history and particulars of the Baha’i faith. Because the followers of Baha’ are such a […]

Baha’i: Day 3/”The Seven Valleys and the Four Valleys”

posted by

   I know, I know…I promised that the next post would be about the history and tenets of the Baha’i faith, but I’m reading an essay (many Baha’is might consider it scripture) called The Seven Valleys and the Four Valleys written by Baha’u’llah, […]

The Baha’i Faith/Day 1

posted by

Allah-u-Abha and welcome to my review of Day 1 with the Baha’i Faith! The greeting “Allah-u-Abha” means “God the Most Glorious” and the founder of the faith, Baha’u’llah, bears a name which means “The Glory of God.” There’s a lot of […]
