The Baha'i Principles said...

may I suggest separating out your posts between those for non baha'is, that is, teaching, and those of interest mainly to believers. That way you could use both this older blogger site and your new one. I am thinking of doing the same with my blog, badiblog on blogspot.

Thanks for your positive comments, by the way...

Hello there, I'm a Baha'i and an artist. Although I've had a website for many years, I recently began bloggin about living the creative life one day at a time.......I have been working creatively with diverse groups of people for over 20 years. One of the goals of my blog is to post tutorials for artistic activities that are inspired by Baha'i teachings. The first one was posted yesterday: The Garden of Humanity Bouquet. I'm excited about blogging! I would be happy to link your blog to mine :) warmest regards, Victoria

POW! (People for One World)  is a conference that's in the planning stages to be at Brighton Creek in August.  This year is the 40th anniversary of the 1969 YOW!  (Youth for One World) conference in Wilmette that was one of the immediate precursors for the huge numbers of enrollments led by teams of youth doing direct teaching in the '70's.  I thought it would be great for some of the people who were involved with the YOW! conference to get together one more time at Brighton Creek.  We could have a hootenanny on the lawn and sing lots of folk songs, get reacquainted with each other and the development of our Baha'i lives over the years, we could have inspiring talks by people who are still probably some of the most dynamic Baha'is around.  Unfortunately, people like Dan Jordan and Magdalene Carney, and Phil Lucas have passed away, while others like Glenford Mitchell are quite aged.  Still, I would love to hear Sandy English or Chris Ruhe lead us in some folk songs.

It seems to me that we are entering a similar stage in our growth of the Faith.  I think I need to find enough people who are interested in this conference to make it worth while, so I need to publicize it. "Come and Join Us" at Brighton Creek!

I understand that there will be a national youth conference in Washington DC this fall.  Why not let us older folks get with this renewal of spirit as well?
