On the Baha'i Community As Not Congregational: The group seemed to be remarkably free of the "churchy" in-fighting that just exhausts me

I attended a devotional service today--my first visit to a Baha'i group other than this forum. It was very pleasant and I enjoyed it. I'll be going back. I'm told that most "church activities" in this area are in the homes of individuals. It was also explained that the Baha'i faith is not congregational, and I like that.  and is the one thing that would stop me from getting further involved.
What does a congregation do? It passively receives. What does a communty do? It interacts.
Here is more from Kim and Cornelia's last Baha'i devotional. -gw
