Rick met a local Bahai at a coffee shop in summer of 2013 and she told him about the Bahai Faith. For two years, he has been exploring different religions. Eventually, he met the Bahai again, and she showed him a video of Bahai youth in Toronto and he liked the community and said “I want a community like that!”
Rick, who is in his mid-50s, just finished studying “Reflections on the Life of the Spirit”, and is now beginning his study of “Arising to Serve” from the Ruhi Institute.
In our last conversation together, Rich shared this about joining the Bahai Faith
“It’s an honor to become a Baha'i and it has increased my knowledge. The secretary of the Baha'i community where I live is helping me to fill this out [the declaration form online.]”
