The Making of A Widening Embrace

Commissioned by the Universal House of Justice, an innovative documentary film called ‘A Widening Embrace’ was produced about the community-building efforts of the Baha’i world, as seen through the eyes of local populations. Much of the film was created by media teams primarily composed of young people themselves engaged in the work, and now the Universal House of Justice has just released ‘The Making Of A Widening Embrace’, a new 22-minute film which shows, through the accounts of members of these same media teams, how the filmmaking process itself developed untapped capacities in those involved, eventually enabling these young people―most of whom had never operated a video camera, let alone made a film―to effectively document the learning taking place in their localities.

Equality of Women and Men: A New Book by Reynaldo Pareja

Reynaldo Pareja of Belize has recently released a book about the equality of women and men, available both in English and Spanish. Titled Equality of Women and Men: An Unstoppable Evolution of Humanity, Reynaldo’s book seeks to address the fact that “we are just beginning to be witnesses of the potential that women have and can foresee the brilliant future they are going to create for humanity.” The book is both informative, and a call to action. I was able to find out a bit more about this book from Reynaldo and here is what he shared with us:
