Material and Spiritual Development Through Service – A Talk by Kevin Trotter

In this talk given at the 2018 Grand Canyon Baha’i Conference, Kevin Trotter shares some thoughts, experiences and quotations about how service is a central element of our spiritual and material progress. By examining the context of our social reality, he offers that our main contribution to society is its spiritualization. He asks, what are the Baha’i standards of life to which we are all striving? 

Kevin Trotter is currently serving on the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of the United States. He spends much of his time reflecting on the spiritual and material education of his three daughters and the community in which they live, while also working as a software engineer.
