Join us tomorrow, Sept. 24, 11 a.m. at the Baha’i Center , 3209 Pulaski Pike, Huntsville, for prayers, and then stay as we begin a study of an important literally masterpiece from the Baha’i Writings, The Advent of Divine Justice.
Members of all faith traditions are welcome to the devotions, AND for the study sessions!
Study of The Advent of Divine Justice is considered a priority of every Bahá’í. Composed in 1938, it is one of most important of the Bahá’í writings to understand. It is addressed to the Bahá’ís of the United States and Canada, whose community it extols as the “chief remaining citadel” of the Faith. Much of the book addresses the “faults, habits, and tendencies which they have inherited from their own nation” that they must “weed” out, and addresses the “distinctive qualities and characteristics” of the Faith they must “patiently and prayerfully” cultivate. The study sessions identify the “most vital and challenging issue confronting the Bahá’í community,” defines a “chaste and holy life,” and delineates the “spiritual prerequisites of success” in teaching. The themes are especially addressed to the Bahá’í youth and places all the actions of the American Bahá’ís in the context of the destiny of America. Understanding and living by the standards set in The Advent of Divine Justice are fundamental to building an inclusive community based on virtue and holiness and to fostering the process leading to entry by troops.”
