Cindi Bush, member of the school committee, writes:
The following powerful exhortation from “Abdu’l-Bahá stirs me. I am so glad that I get to serve on the Indiana Bahá’í Summer School Committee this year. It offers me a chance to be of service. The entire committee is very excited about the format this year! The school is virtual again this year, on Zoom.
An audience of more than 50 people participated in a discussion of challenging issues faced by the Bahá’í community. The August 9 Regional Council’s Racial Justice and Unity Forum featured three presenters: Van Gilmer, Sahar Sattarzadeh, and Masud Olufani, in a panel discussion moderated by Gwen Etter-Lewis.
Each presenter selected one of five questions they received ahead of time and shared their personal reflections.
“In a time when racial tensions continue to churn across the country, members of the local Bahá’í Faith community are working to foster friendships to bridge the divides,” commented Alexandra Mester in her May 21, 2021 article in Toledo’s The Blade.
More than 30 people attended a Race Amity Festival May 14 at Wildwood Metropark in person, while more attended virtually, she reported. People of varying backgrounds and faiths, including Jewish, Christian, Muslim and Bahá’í, listened to speakers and participated in group discussions. Activities also included ice-breakers, music and dance performances.
