Grief and sorrow do not come to us by chance, they are sent to us by the Devine Mercy for our own perfecting. While man is happy he may forget his God; but when grief comes and sorrows overwhelm him, then will he remember his Father who is in Heaven, and who is able to deliver him from his humiliations.

Environmental Stewards: Champions of Justice: An Interactive Workshop.

Saturday * June 7th, 2014 * 1 pm – 4 pm

In commemoration of World Environment Day (June 5th 2014)
Environmental Workshop Flyer-2

This workshop, sponsored by the NVBC Steering Committee, will explore some of the environmental issues humanity is facing and the issues of justice that they trigger.  Integral to the workshop will be study of the Bahá’í teachings as they relate to these issues. Participants will draw inspiration from selected Bahá’í Writings and will reflect on the letter on climate change sent by the National Spiritual Assembly to the American Bahá’í community in January, 2014 — the fifth such letter in as many years. They will also discuss ways in which the community can, and increasingly is translating these teachings into action as they engage in the community-building activities of the Five Year Plan.
