The image used by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá to capture for His hearers the coming transformation of society was that of light. Unity, He declared, is the power that illuminates and advances all forms of human endeavour. The age that was opening would come in the future to be regarded as "the century of light", because in it universal recognition of the oneness of humankind would be achieved. With this foundation in place, the process of building a global society embodying principles of justice will begin.
The light was perfect last weekend at our camping spot along Lower Crab Creek in Eastern Washington. Was this our most exquisite camping experinece ever? It could very well have been. -gw
