I just wanted to share with you the following email from a seeker to my wife. This seeker was originally met during a recent neighborhood outreach to invite people to core activities. __ and her husband started participating in a Book 1 study circle, and their son participates in a very diverse neighborhood children’s class. My wife is accompanying a new children’s class teacher, and I was fortunate to accompany the study circle. The activities in this neighborhood are truly a gift from Bahá’u’lláh. Here is the email from someone who already feels like a Bahá’í. . . .
Subject: A heartfelt Thank You
I just wanted to send you a short email this morning to express my Heartfelt Appreciation and Gratitude for you and the others in giving of yourselves so freely. I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am for having the opportunity to study Bahá’í. It is truly a gift!
I had been asking for guidance in helping my son come to a rounded and full idea of God, without all of the “baggage” that many religions bring into the mix—and then YOU knocked on our door! I am deeply grateful for that.
I had also been praying for new relationships to come into my life, relationships that would serve my highest soul, where I could continue to grow and evolve. Recently many of my interpersonal relationships have fallen away because they were not serving that purpose. But I had no idea how I could find these new relationships. Again, YOU knocked on the door and brought a wonderful group of like-minded individuals into my life! I am deeply grateful for that.
