Introducing “Creative Ideas” – A New Series on Baha’i Blog’s YouTube Channel

Paper Flowers 864x486

With all the activities going on in the Baha’i world, one of the things we really hope to achieve here at Baha’i Blog is to help serve as a resource for Baha’is and their friends, and that’s one of the reasons we launched our very own YouTube channel.

Our first series of videos on Baha’i Blog’s YouTube channel are called Studio Sessions, and the series has been extremely popular and is being met with a lot of support and enthusiasm – so thank you everyone!

Over the years we’ve had a lot of people asking us to help them with ideas of games or arts-and-crafts they can use for their children’s classes, holy days, or other Baha’i-inspired activities, so now that Studio Sessions is well underway, we’re now launching a new series called “Creative Ideas” to help with just that.

25th Anniversary of the passing of Hand of the Cause of God Collis Featherstone

Collis Featherstone (5th May, 1913 - 29th September, 1990)

Collis Featherstone (5th May, 1913 - 29th September, 1990)

The telephone rang. It was the Saturday morning of the long October Labor Day weekend in Australia. It was my mother ringing from Kathmandu, Nepal where she and my father, Collis Featherstone, were visiting the Baha’is before flying to Pakistan to attend a Youth Conference. I immediately suspected something was wrong. My father had just passed away following a heart attack. I was stunned, shocked, horrified, deeply deeply saddened and rocked to my very soul. How did this happen, how were we to go to Nepal for the funeral and how were we to arrange ticketing quickly with the Monday being a holiday and no travel agent open (no computer ticketing in those days)? Who was going to look after our four children?

The only answer was prayer. Answers came, and with the help of dear friends, my husband Ho-San and I flew out of Sydney to Kathmandu on Tuesday morning 2nd October, together with Judy Hassall as the representative of the National Spiritual Assembly of Australia. The funeral was held on Friday 5th October, and my father was laid to rest in the Baha’i Cemetery in Kathmandu. Continue reading

Do Baha’is Believe in Miracles?

Do Baha'is Beleive in Miracles

Miracles are important events in the Christian Bible, but do Baha’is believe in miracles?

Of course we do! God’s power is beyond any limitation – He is the sole Author of all the laws operating in the universe, is above them and can, therefore, if He deems it necessary, alter them at His Own Will:

The operation of miracles is not necessarily irrational or illogical. It does by no means constitute a limitation of the Omnipotence of God. The belief in the possibilities of miracles, on the contrary, implies that God’s power is beyond any limitation whatsoever. For it is only logical to believe that the Creator, Who is the sole Author of all the laws operating in the universe, is above them and can, therefore, if He deems it necessary, alter them at His Own Will. We, as humans, cannot possibly attempt to read His Mind, and to fully grasp His Wisdom.

The belief in the possibility of miracles has never been rejected in the Baha’i teachings. Their importance, however, has been minimized: Continue reading
