Note to self: one 4 ½ - 5 pound butternut squash + tasty, (low-calorie and fat-free — NOT!) ingredients = two (hopefully delicious) crustless pumpkin pies.
The verdict will be reached tomorrow!

This book focuses on those processes which are at work in the Age of Transition and which are propelling humanity towards the Lesser Peace. It explores the meaning of the tumult of our times in light of mankind’s ordained destiny, the nature of the choices placed before this generation, the consequences of those choices, and the remaining challenges facing us before teaching the Lesser Peace. Its purpose is to assist the Bahá’ís to understand both the causes and the benefits of the turmoil and suffering of this Age of Frustration so that we many participate in our society-building efforts and avoid the despair and hopelessness suffered by those who are unaware of the fruits which will be borne at the end of this period of world-embracing tribulations.
My sister and brother-in-law recently relocated and chose to donate several books in their library rather than move them. Many of these volumes are not well-known, but due to the topics they cover and the manner in which their authors explore them, they warrant a nod of recognition before being sent on their way. Accordingly, most quotes referenced in the “Quoted” section come from these books. Maybe they will stir (or renew) your interest, too.
