My Story of Diversity: 5 Countries, 7 Languages | Nichan Najjarian

In this talk, produced by Bahaiteachings.org, Nichan Najjarian says “Diversity has defined my life since childhood.” Growing up during wartime in Lebannon, he tells the story of those who brought beauty and diversity to his life. Nichan grew up in Beirut, in the middle of a street-by-street civil war, being fought for control of the city and the nation. That war divided people by ethnicity, nationality and religion. But somehow, in the midst of all that division, Nichan finds a friend—Eddie. In his travels, he meets many Eddies—all from diverse cultures and backgrounds, and all contributing to the beautiful, diverse garden of humanity. That diversity leads him to the Baha’i Faith.  Continue reading

Sole Desire Serve Cause: A Book by Don Brown

Don Brown has written a memoir of Gale and Jameson (or Jamie, as he was fondly called) Bond, two Knights of Baha’u’llah who pioneered to the Canadian north. It’s called Sole Desire Serve Cause and it’s a new George Ronald publication (you can purchase it here).

The incredible stories of the Baha’is who sacrificially arose to spread the teachings and principles of the Baha’i Faith in remote and desolate places never cease to uplift and inspire and I am really excited that Gale and Jamie’s story is now in print. I love to get an insider’s story on new Baha’i-inspired publications and Don graciously agreed to tell me about his new book. Here’s what he shared:

Baha’i Blog: Thanks for taking the time to chat with us, Don. To start things off, could you please tell us a little about yourself and your work as a writer?

Professionally I worked as a management consultant throughout my career providing organization systems and strategic planning services to public and private sector businesses in Canada and in Jamaica where we pioneered for five years from 1982 to 1987. My wife, Christine and I served at the Baha’i World Centre from 1991 to 1996. Throughout my career I did extensive report writing. In 2001/2002 I wrote and self-published a book To Build Anew: Creating Baha’i Inspired Enterprises.
