Fireside Discussion, Goldstein’s, December 3, 2011

On December 3, 2012, Statesboro Bahá’ís and friends gathered at Joe and Ana Goldstein’s home for dinner and an informal discussion on the meaning of “justice” from a Bahá’í and various other perspectives. Please click below for photos and more information about the event.

We enjoyed a stimulating discussion about justice and how it might be used to remedy social and economic injustices. After sharing various views and quotes about justice, we seemed to agree that it is a complex but essential principle for discerning truth and rightly guiding our personal and social actions. Special thanks are extended to Ana Goldstein and her mother, Maria, for preparing a delicious Peruvian dinner. According to Bahá’u’lláh, prophet-founder of the Bahá’í Faith, “…The best beloved of all things in My sight is Justice; turn not away therefrom if thou desirest Me, and neglect it not that I may confide in thee. By its aid thou shalt see with thine own eyes and not through the eyes of others, and shalt know of thine own knowledge and not through the knowledge of thy neighbor…”
