Audiobook: The Baha’i Response to the Crisis of Our Time
By Joan Hernandez
The times in which we live are characterized by two power processes: disintegration and integration. Each and every person has the possibility of contributing to the process of integration. Unfortunately, many remain spectators, either because they don’t know what to do, or they feel that due to the magnitude of the problems facing society, their efforts would have little effect.
Baha’u’llah has revealed teachings that give us a clear vision of a future society—characterized by unity, justice and world peace—a society that we are called upon to construct. The Baha’i Faith gives us concrete guidance on the most effective actions that we can take at this moment, calling upon us to participate in a worldwide program of moral and spiritual education. Those who join the effort become part of a planetary network, receiving guidance and support in their efforts to contribute to a better world.
