Like many other friends, I have tried to study the 29th of December letter. In this process, it has been helpful to structure the content of the letter. However, I noticed that all letters explain extensively “the process of sustainable growth” where clusters are moving along a continuum of stages that are marked by milestones.

If you wish to get a better overview of this “process of sustainable growth”, perhaps the below study guides/aids will be of assistance. This post has one new study guide/aid and also references previously posted material on this topic.

  • A  listing the steps of the “process of sustainable growth” with references to key letters for further explanation and elaboration of each step from different perspectives. The elaborative references are from the 29th of December 2015 letter, the 28th of December 2010 letter, the Ridvan Message of 2010 and Insights from the frontiers of learning.   – Steps of Process of Sustainable Growth

Perhaps a topical outline of the 29 December letter from the Universal House of Justice might help in its study. If so, here is one (Topical Outline of 29DEC2015 Letter from UHJ)

It is interesting to note that the headings of the letter seem to define or succinctly characterise the essence of the milestones.

1st Milestone: The emergence of a programme of growth

2nd Milestone: Strengthening the pattern of action (Intensive Programme of Growth)

3rd Milestone: Embracing large numbers and managing complexity

To the Bahá’ís of the World

Dearly loved Friends,


We address you these words from the gathering where, for five successive days, the Continental Counsellors have earnestly considered the implications of the next global Plan. Their insightful consultations drew on the impressive body of knowledge about the process of capacity building that is being generated in thousands of clusters worldwide. The numerous accounts that were shared in the course of the Conference attested the creativity, tenacity, and burgeoning abilities of the community of the Greatest Name and, above all, its reliance on the confirmations of the Almighty.

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.
