Fireside Discussion, Goldstein’s, September 14, 2012

On September 14, 2012, Statesboro Bahá’ís and friends gathered at Joe and Ana Goldstein’s home for dinner and a discussion of “Why Religion? Why Bahá’í?” Please click below for photos and more information about the event.

Approximately 23 attendees viewed musical videos, shared a tasty dinner, enjoyed warm fellowship, and participated in a stimulating discussion. During the discussion of the importance of religion for society, people of diverse nationalities shared their personal views: China, Bangladesh, Brazil, Ecuador, Spain, Peru, Trinidad, and the USA. According to the Bahá’í Faith, religion is essential to the well-being of all societies because it is “the greatest means for the establishment of order in the world and for peaceful contentment of all that dwell therein” (Bahá’u’lláh). During the discussion of the importance of the Bahá’í Faith for this age, we learned that the purpose of the Bahá’í Faith is to renew the progressive cycle of religion and to bring about by spiritual means the next stage in our human evolution: global unity and peace on earth. This next stage of global unity and peace will embrace and celebrate the great cultural diversity of the whole planet.
