A woman was asked by a coworker, 'What is it like to be a Baha'i?'

> The coworker replied, 'It is like being a pumpkin.' God picks you from the patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off of you.

> Then He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff.

> He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, and greed. Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to
> see.'
