Here are some new happenings around Baha’i cyberspace:
It is always good to see a new Baha’i blogger! I love the name of the blog. I don’t want to spoil it for you so read the author’s own explanation.
The Blend Monthly
This relatively new blog offers insight, news, poetry, stories, and a variety of other contributions for and from young people around the world. The focus of the blog is to educate one another and express what we share through a lens of faith. This is not a place of proselytism or theological debates. The goal is to teach, to learn, to inspire, and to strengthen ourselves and others through belief.
Year of Faith
Which reminds me, the youth who I brought to your attention a while back have now finished their ‘Baha’i month’ experiment. They have some very interesting thoughts about the Baha’i Faith, after being ‘pseudo’ Baha’is for a month. They have now started their next month long religion: Satanism! (pass the brimstone, please)
Always a treat to feast on the noetic works of this young Baha’i. This new discourse is titled ‘Truth: A Dialogue’. And if you’ve missed the other equally good essays and dialogues from Cook, you can find them here. If you like a good yarn, I recommend ‘Mansur & the Priests of Nod’.
Alison Marshall, a lover of the Blessed Beauty, presents us with a very precious gift: the Writings of Baha’u’llah. The purpose of the site is to enable you to study the Writings for yourself and develop a personal relationship with Baha’u’llah through direct access to His Writings. It is a one-stop-shop for provisonal translations with more than 150 lesser known tablets.
The US-based Time magazine has opened up their considerable archives. It includes this interesting article on the Baha’i Faith from way back in 1963; reporting on the first election of the Universal House of Justice in London at the first Baha’i World Congress. And here’s another from 1931! You really get a sense of how far we’ve come when you compare these article to articles being written today. Kudos to all the hard-working external affairs officers around the world!
