Completed reformatting the home page for Greener Acres Value Network TimeBank. This included:
- Adding a more appropriate conclusion to the portfolio overview thereby striking the open-ended “stay tuned for more” statement;
- Editing the description of the “Raising the Value of Learning” project so it places more attention on the wealth of materials available on The Learn & Do Network website commissioned by Tony Budak; and
- Featuring four steps one can follow to participate in the GAVNet TB projects near the top of the page.
Feedback from folks who try it will tell me what further revisions are needed!

We wish to stress that, historically and now, social action and efforts to participate in the prevalent discourses of society have emerged not only in the context of growth, but also as a result of individual Bahá’ís striving to contribute to society’s progress in ways available to them. As a personal response to Bahá’u’lláh’s summons to work for the betterment of the world, believers have variously chosen to adopt certain vocations and have sought out opportunities to support the activities of like-minded groups and organizations. Projects, both large and small, have been started in order to respond to a range of social issues. Numerous Bahá’í-inspired organizations have been established by groups of individuals to work for many different objectives, and specialist entities have been founded to give attention to a particular discourse. All of these efforts, at whatever scale they have been undertaken, have benefited from being able to draw on the principles and insights guiding the activities occurring at the grassroots of the worldwide Bahá’í community, and they have also benefited from the wise counsels of Local and National Spiritual Assemblies. We rejoice to see these diverse, harmonious expressions of faith by the devoted followers of the Blessed Beauty, in response to the tribulations of a perplexed and sorely agitated world. 1
