On Del Comes to Devotions: Spiritual conversations lead to friendship

Spiritual conversations lead to friendship

In the Baha'i Faith, spiritual search and religious identity are matters between the individual and God. But, oftentimes, when someone wants to learn about the Baha'i Faith, they turn to those who are already Baha'is to assist them. This can often lead to deep bonds of friendship.

Malii noticed her Baha'i co-worker didn't get involved in office gossip. But, her interest in the Baha'i Faith grew gradually, as she explored it on her own terms.

Our devotional meeting last Thursday, which included not only a round of prayers, but study of a prayer, led to deep spiritual conversation. Negar brought Del, a colleague from work, to his third Baha'i devotional, but the first this side of the Narrows Bridge. Del lives in the neighborhood, so we are looking forward to seeing him again. At devotions again, certainly, but perhaps he'd be interested in the next Book 1 study circle. Isn't Joe starting one soon?
We ended the evening looking at a video I've featured before on Baha'i Views, footage of the L.A. Workshop from back in the day. Negar used to perfrom in the workshop, and asked to see it.
