we were having some issues with the BellaOnline mail servers, so if you tried to send me a message in the last few days, I didn't receive it. There is the possibility that I will, because outgoing messages were queued and have gone. I'm not techie enough to know if it will work that way for incoming... So, many apologies if I missed you!
Meanwhile, here's the latest article from the Baha'i site at BellaOnline.com.
Why Bahá'ís Fast
What is the purpose of Fasting in the Bahá'í Faith, and what does it mean to its adherents.
Please visit bahai.bellaonline.com as new articles go up every Saturday morning. Next week, for instance, will be a review of Louhelen Bahá'í School and Retreat - bit of history, but mostly what you can expect in the way of facilities and programs, and my family's experiences there. Also a link to their website for more in depth info.
If you would like to share your experiences with fasting, Bahá'í Schools, or anything else related to the Bahá'í Faith, do join the online discussion in the community forum located here -
I hope our mail system is back in working condition so that I can hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on feedback!
