Here's the latest article from the Baha'i site at BellaOnline.com.
There Are No Clergy in the Bahá’í Faith
Why is the Bahá'í Faith without clergy?
I was just asked this question the other day, and this is what I wish I had said! Isn't that always the way?
Here's hoping the Summer is off to a good start for you all. Or, Winter for the rest, LOL. There is just enough drizzle going on here that we cut the cycling short this morning, even though it smelled wonderful and was neither too hot, nor too cold.
And, of course, being the Midwest USA, everything was so GREEN! I'm from the desert out west, so I keep expecting Bambi to bound out of the bushes any minute. Which did happen not so long ago, but fortunately I was driving a car and not my cycle at the time. Not to fear, though, because after doing about $4000 damage to the car, the buck picked himself up and darted across the road again, just missing a truck coming the other way. Bambi is tough!
Please visit bahai.bellaonline.com as the content is being updated, and not all the changes are being featured. For instance, some background informational articles were added this past week:
* a brief glossary,
* notes on the Bahá'í calendar,
* one of the holy days Bahá'ís observe,
You can participate in online discussions in two ways:
1. Sign on to the community forum about Bahá'í Faith, located here -
2. Watch for announcement of a Bahá'í chat group later this summer. Details of time and date are yet to be decided, based upon reader interest and input. Help me out here, please; dealing with times zones is just higher math to me!
I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!
Feel free to pass this message along to family and friends.
