This love will bring the realization of true accord, the foundation of real unity.” -Abdu’l-Baha

4 Things I Am Learning About the Covenant and Families

There are many terms in the Baha’i Faith’s Teachings that are easy to read but often difficult to understand and that require life-long study and deepening. One of them is the Covenant, in this case, the Lesser Covenant (if you’d like to know more about the Greater and Lesser Covenants, you can read about them here).
