On With a Little Help From Our Friends: It takes a draught of divine love to unify a neighborhood and a village to raise a child

Corinne is a radiant soul who participated on a Baha'i teaching team visiting the homes of Lakewood residents on Saturday, then joining the prayer team on Sunday. We are so grateful for her service.
Before being whisked off to a visit to Tacoma's Glass Museum with "Auntie" Martha and "Uncle" Norm, while the rest of us girded up our loins for Day Two of our intensive on Sunday, Liam occupied himself by practicing his eye-hand coordination at his mother Lisa's feet. -gw

When any souls grow to be true believers, they will attain a spiritual relationship with one another, and show forth a tenderness which is not of this world. They will, all of them, become elated from a draught of divine love, and that union of theirs, that connection, will also abide forever. Souls, that is, who will consign their own selves to oblivion, strip from themselves the defects of humankind, and unchain themselves from human bondage, will beyond any doubt be illumined with the heavenly splendours of oneness, and will all attain unto real union in the world that dieth not.
