Cellar and Sky: An Album by Yosi Mesbah

Yosi Mesbah Baha'i Blog INTV 864x500

I’m so excited about featuring Yosi Mesbah’s album, Cellar and Sky, on Baha’i Blog. It’s a hauntingly honest, uplifting and moving album where her folksy and jazzy timbered voice beautifully sings about dealing with life’s tests and difficulties in a lyrical but down-to-earth way. I can’t help but feel moved when I hear her album, and I had the pleasure of meeting Yosi at the recent Grand Canyon Baha’i Conference in Arizona a couple of months ago. As you know I love asking artists about their creative process and was glad when Yosi agreed to tell us more about her album and her experiences in putting it together. Continue reading

An Introduction to ‘One Common Faith’

By reviewing passages from both the Writings of Baha’u’llah and the scriptures of other faiths regarding the role of religion in relation to the conditions of contemporary society, One Common Faith provides profound insights about how religion affects the advancement of society.  Continue reading

The Lovely Hand-Lettered Works of Elly Sabet Collins

The Lovely Hand-Lettered Works of Elly Sabet Collins 864x468

The art of hand-lettering and calligraphy is my favourite design medium and I love when I discover a new-to-me artist who beautifies the prayers and sacred Writings of the Baha’i Faith. I was completely captivated when I first saw the work of Elly Sabet Collins from Australia. Her meticulous and warm lettering and her dainty detailed illustrations or embellishments frame the texts she chooses beautifully. In this post, we get to ask Elly about her work and highlight a few of her amazing pieces. If you’re hungry for more, you can follow Elly’s artwork on InstagramContinue reading
