Lily of the valley (Convallaria majalis) all budded out just in time for May …
With a couple of dandelions to add color ;-)
Used Ulysses to adapt a series of 13 posts made to “Daily Log” on Micro.blog—one for each slide in the “Let Your Vision Be World-Embracing” presentation—for reposting to the Frameworks for Understanding the World website. The next step will be to upload them to Frameworks … From there I’ll be able to expand upon each one separately while keeping them publicly visible to solicit feedback — I hope!
Worked in the yard, again. Whew! This could be habit-forming—nah!
Conferences across nation diffuse spirit and prompt action
How does a cluster of communities equip itself to release greater measures of the society-building power of the Faith of Baha’u’llah? How does this happen within a city, or maybe a single neighborhood? What degree of effort, what kind of local planning and consultation, what capacities need to be built to strengthen a framework of worship and service inspired by Baha’i teachings?
In thousands of locales, Baha’is and their fellow well-wishers of humanity are even now shaping the responses to those questions in a global mosaic of conversation: conferences large and small, filled with prayer, inspiration, local consultation, music and artistic expression.
Already underway in the United States is a series of hundreds of these conferences, generally planned for early this spring, around the beginning of a new nine-year development plan for the worldwide Baha’i community.
Participants are not only identifying the conditions and requirements of that development where they live, but also taking strides into action to become active protagonists in building a vibrant community life.
They are studying and consulting on such themes as the vision of Baha’u’llah, Founder of the Baha’i Faith, for humanity; the distance traversed to this point; educational and training endeavors; and contributing to social transformation. 1
