Bahá’í Discussion & Dinner, Rea’s, November 3, 2012

On November 3, 2012, Statesboro Bahá’ís and friends gathered at Dan and Maria Rea’s home for dinner and a discussion of “The Bahá’í Faith in China.” Please click below for photos and more information about the event.

Fourteen people shared a tasty dinner with homemade dishes from China, Peru, and Brazil. Then we listened to inspiring music and song by Qianting Yao and Joe Goldstein. Finally, we participated in a stimulating discussion about “The Bahá’í Faith in China” facilitated by Cindy and Saad Al-Jassar who recently return from living in China for 14 months. According to the Bahá’í writings, China is a country with a great future—not just economically as it is already demonstrating—but also spiritually, having the capacity to be “a bright candle of the world of humanity” and to “promote the principles of divine civilization.” Like any nation with a rapidly growing economy, China is faced with the challenge of how to balance a strong desire for material development with the spiritual principle of serving humanity. The Bahá’í Faith offers a balanced approach of “material development for the betterment of humanity.” Bahá’u’lláh, the prophet-founder of the Bahá’í faith, teaches that material wealth should serve the needs of all the people and not just the privileged few. Please join the Bahá’ís in working for both the material and spiritual development of the world. An education for material success is not enough; we also need an education for spiritual wisdom and compassion to better serve humanity. You are invited to join a Bahá’í Study Circle and learn about a spiritual education.
