Community Building Training
All of us feel a desire to help one another and to see the society around us advance and prosper. We all look forward to a future where peace and harmony have been established and the people of the world live in unity. Such a world is not a utopian dream and can be built through human effort that seeks to uplift hearts and minds and to transform the structures of society. This effort can grow and bear fruit as more and more of us unite in service to humanity. Deep in our hearts each of us has the desire to serve our communities. What we need are opportunities to develop our capacity to undertake acts of service selflessly and purely for the good of others.
I am offering for a friend and I to meet you in person to read and discuss a document that has been inspired by world-wide Bahá'í community building experience. If you have been feeling like you would like to do SOMETHING to contribute to the betterment of the world, but don't know what that would look like, this could help give you a coherent framework for finding your own unique path of service. If several people show an interest, we'll find a time when we can all meet together.
Here are some of the themes we'll learn about and discuss:
The Constructive and Destructive Forces of Society
Material and Spiritual Progress
Individual and Collective Transformation
A United Community
If you're interested in seeing how this community building process has unfolded in different parts of the world, you can view this film: http://www.bahai.org/frontiers/
I look forward to meeting you and having meaningful conversations about how we can transform ourselves and the society in which we live.
