Hello and welcome to the Baha’i Blogcast with me your host, Rainn Wilson.
In this series of podcasts, I interview members of the Baha’i Faith and friends from all over the world about their hearts, and minds, and souls, their spiritual journeys, what they’re interested in, and what makes them tick.
In this special episode in honor of the 100th Anniversary of the passing of Abdu’l-Baha, I’m joined by Kathryn Hogenson, author, and attorney, who joins me in my home in California. She tells me how she became a Baha’i and about Ruhiyyih Khanum and her time at the Baha’i World Centre. She also talks about the first Western Baha’i pilgrims to Holy Land, and she shares unknown stories of Abdu’l-Baha and the Bahai’s of that time. I’m sure you’ll enjoy this conversation as much I did!
