On Trying Something Different: Jamie decided to attend the Baha'i Junior Youth program they offer

Devotions and children's classes are two of the three core activities for Baha'is, and are open to all. -gw

The younger boys and I are attending the Family Hour at the Dharma Center again. We've tried, over the years, to make this a family ritual, but it is met with just too much resistance, and it's not something I'm willing to force over and over. I've known all along that there is a very thriving Baha'i' community in town, so I decided to ask a friend who participates to tell me more. Jamie, Jeremiah and I did some reading and thought it was something we could try. All 6 of us attended the devotional a couple sundays ago, and we had a very lovely time. The devotional was about 15-20 minutes long, and all but Kellen sat quietly. The food and conversation afterward was fabulous. Jamie decided to attend the Junior Youth program they offer and had a good time with the other teens. Jeremiah is reluctant to try the children's class but became more willing when I discovered there are two other boys his age.
