  1. A good report; thank you. One note of correction: a picture of Abdu’ Baha, who is the son of founder Baha’u’llah, is presented implying it is a picture of Baha’u’llah. As a matter of policy, Baha’is do don display or publish any photos of Baha’u’llah, and it should be also noted that we do not worship Baha’u’llah. Rather, the Baha’i Faith is a continuation of the Abramic Faith tradition, worshipping the one God worshipped by, Jews, Christians, Muslims, etc.

  2. I have tried every way imaginable including contacting chromebook help and I am unable to view the video. I hate that because I would love to see it. any suggestions?

    1. Hi Sara, the video seems to be working fine for everyone. The only thing I can think of is that perhaps you don’t have a strong enough internet connection. I hope you’re able to see it! 🙂

          1. thank you very much. I got to see it. Too bad about the mix up with Baha’u’llah and Abdul’Baha’s photo.
            We lived in SC in the early 70s during all the mass teaching and the Army of Light, Janabe Caldwell, the chiropractors who were Baha’is who came to SC to home front pioneer. We lived in Columbia. Those were wild times.

  4. I am now living in England, before coming here I spent almost 3 years in SC. I want to say a big hello to all my friends in Conway, this morning I received this video news clip from our small Bahai group here in Southampton. Imagine my surprise and joy to see so many faces of friends from around Conway! Lynda, Marge and Greg, the beautiful daughter of Alexandra Gore! Praise to Baha u llah.
