Fruits of His Mission

"We remember every one of you, men and women, and from this Spot -- the Scene of incomparable glory -- regard you all as one soul and send you the joyous tidings of divine blessings which have preceded all created things, and of My remembrance that pervadeth everyone, whether young or old. The glory of God rest upon you, O people of Baha. Rejoice with exceeding gladness through My remembrance, for He is indeed with you at all times."
(Baha'u'llah, Tablets of Baha'u'llah, p. 264)

These are some photos from tonight's commemoration of the Birth of Baha'u'llah. I've long believed that some of the sweetest fruits of His Mission is the community that has been raised up through the power of His teachings. A community that unites East and West, Global North and Global South, all working together to build a new, global civilization.
