Blogwarriors: March 29th Edition

One day when the Baha'i bloggers become famous they will make an epic movie about our herioc exploints to save the world. Maybe it will be called "Lord of the Laptops" or something like that. I knew I should have gone to film school. By the way, ever notice that in the Fellowship of the Ring, there were exactly 9 members of that group. Imagine if these guys were the members of your Local Spiritual Assembly!

So I'll be participating in the Black Men's Gathering New England starting tomorrow, one of the many local BMG's happening all over the U.S. and beyond this year. I thus will not be blogging for a couple of days and figured it was time for another edition of Blogwarriors where I point out some of the coolest post that I've seen in the last week or so. Spring seems to be in the air in the Baha'i blogger world and great posts are blossoming all over the place:

The recently discovered (at least by me) Neocrats have a post about the complexity of cultural identity called Colour Me Cosmopolitan.

The ever ferocious Malik at the Struggle Within has a preface to a new series of posts he'll be publishing about the Business of Racism

Poetry of Peace joins the chorus of folks who have discovered that there is a Baha'i actor who is becoming pretty popular for his role on The Office

Love From Leila, where this born again blogwarrior goes for comic relief, has a recipe for Ghee whatever that is. Seriously, this woman should host the Oscars next year

U.K. blogwarrior Barnabas has a post about a meditation class the Baha'is have been hosting that might be interesting for other folks to try

David at Correlating takes on the idea that women are more religious than men because men are more "risky"

Anxiously Concerned, a fellow social commentary blogger has a post about research on Applied Knowledge

Onward, brave Baha'i bloggers!

Correction: It seems that I erroneously suggested that the Arabic prayer on Bilo's blog Baha'i Faith in Egypt was actually chanted by Shoghi Effendi. It's a bit unclear especially as I don't recall prayers written by Shoghi Effendi being used in the Baha'i community, but I've been wrong before. In any case, just to be on the safe side I've removed that reference from this post. Thanks Christine and Brian for commenting on that.
