On There Are People Hurting: Transformation is not possible if we operate at comfortable distance from the problems of the world

Friend 1: "There's a lot of people out there who are really hurting. Emotionally and physically ther're damaged. And the healing message of Baha'u'lah can help resolve that damage."
Friends 2: "In the December 28 letter from the House they mention the kind of social transformation that Baha'u'llah brings not being possible when the community of individuals caring for that transformation operates at a comfortable distance from the rest of the the world. So it's wonderful to see that the Faith is taking steps little by little to provide for that. Because as anybody [knows] who goes out and teaches even in their own neighborhood -- the people that you live around, whether in your neighrhood or the next city over --  these issues are just everywhere."
More evidence of the inspiration the December 28 letter of the Universal House of Justice is already having can be heard on these video clips of Baha'is gathered at a Cluster Reflection Meeting near Seattle a few weeks ago. -gw
