On Expressions of Faith: Religion renewed

There is tremendous diversity in what people believe. When I'm in someone's home I look for evidence of expressions of their faith.

The expectations that people have about the future are often influenced by their religious beliefs. For evangelical Christians there is often a focus on the return of Christ. 

The renewal of religion through the emergence of an Abraham, Moses, Christ, and Muhammad,  a Krishna and a Buddha, each coming in fulfillment of the prophecies of Manifestations of God that came before, is basic to Baha'i belief. It is the conviction of Baha'i's that Baha'u'llah is the latest of these great religious figures.

In these photos, all taken in one house, I find evidence of a fervent belief in Jesus Christ and his emminent return. I also find on the shelves a book that at least notes the claims of Baha'u'llah. -gw
