A new letter from the Universal House of Justice dated 1st of March 2017 to the Bahais of the world regarding economic life.

 

THE UNIVERSAL HOUSE OF JUSTICE

1 March 2017

To the Bahá’ís of the World

Dearly loved Friends,

In an increasingly interconnected world, more light is being cast on the social conditions of every people, giving greater visibility to their circumstances. While there are developments that give hope, there is much that should weigh heavy on the conscience of the human race. Inequity, discrimination, and exploitation blight the life of humanity, seemingly immune to the treatments applied by political schemes of every hue. The economic impact of these afflictions has resulted in the prolonged suffering of so many, as well as in deep-seated, structural defects in society. No one whose heart has been attracted to the teachings of the Blessed Beauty can remain unmoved by these consequences. “The world is in great turmoil,” Bahá’u’lláh observes in the Lawḥ-i-Dunyá, “and the minds of its people are in a state of utter confusion. We entreat the Almighty that He may graciously illuminate them with the glory of His Justice, and enable them to discover that which will be profitable unto them at all times and under all conditions.” As the Bahá’í community strives to contribute at the level of thought and action to the betterment of the world, the adverse conditions experienced by many populations will more and more demand its attention.

The 29th of December 2015 letter from The Universal House of Justice has been studied (and will be studied more) and it might be time for some questions. If you wish to “test” your knowledge of the letter’s contents or perhaps end a deepening session with some questions, you might find this 29DEC2015 Letter Questions helpful.

The participants can be divided in two or more groups, and then each group chooses a question. If they answer the question correctly, they get the points. Once a question has been chosen, it will change colour but remember, after each question, just click next and the answer comes. Then just use the triangle in the lower left corner of the slide to get back to the main page with all the categories. There are 20 questions in total.

The questions are in PowerPoint format so you will need powerpoint or power point viewer to see the slides. You can download the powerpoint viewer for free (just google it).

The questions are, as you can see from the screen print below, categorised in words (meaning of difficult words), quotes (missing words), numbers (asking for numbers stated in the letter) and who (which institution is entrusted with certain tasks).

THE UNIVERSAL HOUSE OF JUSTICE

29 December 2015

To the Conference of the Continental Boards of Counsellors

Dearly loved Friends,

The Plan upon which the Bahá’í world embarked nearly five years ago is in its closing stages; the final tally of its accomplishments grows still, but will soon be sealed. The collective effort it inspired has called for wholehearted reliance on those powers with which a benevolent Lord has endowed His loved ones. Gathered with you at this moment of reflection, we are conscious of a determination among the friends to bring the current Plan to a fitting conclusion, and of an eagerness to advance further along the path that experience has marked out.
