Sunrise: Hello February!
Started developing task flows for each of the three projects in the “Social Change” space on ClickUp: “How’s the Weather?,” “Global Rebirth,” and “TimeBanking.” It is becoming increasingly obvious that unless there are staffed, scheduled, and repeatable processes in place for refreshing content and responding to feedback, questions, or concerns, none of these projects will get very far. If I’m not careful, I’m going to feel alone and overwhelmed ;-)
The organized endeavors of the Bahá’í community in these areas are reinforced by the diverse initiatives of individual believers working in various fields—as volunteers, professionals, and experts—to contribute to social change. The distinctive nature of their approach is to avoid conflict and the contest for power while striving to unite people in the search for underlying moral and spiritual principles and for practical measures that can lead to the just resolution of the problems afflicting society. Bahá’ís perceive humanity as a single body. All are inseparably bound to one another. A social order structured to meet the needs of one group at the expense of another results in injustice and oppression. Instead, the best interest of each component part is achieved by considering its needs in the context of the well-being of the whole. 1
