Baha'i Thought Gets Social

The mission of Baha'i Thought is to promote the creation of a new civilization through the use of new media. In light of being honored with an Award of Excellence in Internet Communication recently, I decided it was time to take this blog to the next level. How? Through more effectively tapping into that taking-the-world-by-storm phenomenon of social networking. You'll now find Baha'i Thought doin' its thing on Facebook and Twitter. How cool is that?

"... The Powers released by Bahá'u'lláh match the needs of the times. We may therefore be utterly confident that the new throb of energy now vibrating throughout the Cause will empower it to meet the oncoming challenges of assisting, as maturity and resources allow, the development of the social and economic life of peoples, of collaborating with the forces leading towards the establishment of order in the world, of influencing the exploitation and constructive uses of modern technology, and in all these ways enhancing the prestige and progress of the Faith and uplifting the conditions of the generality of mankind." (From the Message of the Universal House of Justice to the Bahá'ís of the World, Ridvan 1983)
