On the End Is Near: Wear layers and take an umbrella

The end is near
The end is near

Mead -- artist, Baha'i and community builder -- writes a meaty blog. I love his commentaries, the day-to-day observations of a person committed to learning what it takes so that collectively we can move from tens serving hundreds to hundreds serving thousands in this process of spiritual community building Baha'is and their friends are engaged in.  Some days we may wake up and think, "the end is near." It's not. The end of one thing is the beginning of another. (I don't know how many times I have returned to this theme over the course of the 7 1/2 years I've been doing this blog.) Mead started his day in a fog. -gw
Then, as I got ready to come into work today, it was pouring. The fog had melted away and the whole area was being scrubbed clean by the seemingly boundless rains.

Now it's sunny again.

This is a day of unexpected change and those of us who live here have to adapt. We all dress in layers, and everyone here either has a raincoat or umbrella that they are carrying, or a frown.

And all of this reminds me of the Baha'i community today.

Change is happening, faster, in most cases, than we can imagine.

Spectators to the process of change have it coming
