IN DEPTH: Listen to the discussion about worship and service as well as family life, community and race unity
In this podcast episode, Counsellors from Asia, the Americas, and Australasia explore the relationship between worship and service and discuss family life, community, and race unity.
The first episode looked at spiritual and moral education programs for young people. The second highlights experiences with community schools in Africa. In this podcast episode, Counsellors explore the relationship between worship and service and discuss family life, community, and race unity.
Sokuntheary Reth speaks about the effect of an interwoven pattern of worship and service on the character of a community, drawing on the experience of the Baha’i community in Battambang, Cambodia, where a local Baha’i House of Worship was erected last year.
“After we had the Temple,” Ms. Reth explains. “We could see that people gained more understanding of prayer, about the meaning of prayer, and the power of prayer. They feel that when they come as a whole family, it helps the family to become closer to each other and much more united.”
Also, Mark Sisson from the United States and Taraz Nadarajah from Australia discuss family life, community, and race. They draw especially on experiences in Sydney, Australia, and San Diego, United States. In their conversation, they explore both how social forces are affecting society and how Baha’i communities are learning about transcending those forces to build new patterns of community life based on the oneness of humankind.
