On In the Thick of Things: The Baha'i core activites don't take us above the problems of the world

One of the players who showed up for the Invaders practice Sunday lives at the Rescue Mission shelter currently. He travels about town on a skateboard. He's not a kid. He's a man with a dream and strong aspirations.
We encounter the very real problems of the world through the effort of providing the Baha'i core activities. There is poverty to start with. Homelessness. And the effects of substance abuse. Think crack babies. Behavior problems in chidren's class aren't always of the minor and mild variety. We're not afraid of the problems people have. We have expertise. We have Baha'is who have been there. We have resolve, commitment -- and assurance of the outcome of our efforts. It won't be easy. -gw
