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 Baha’i author, Rob Weinberg from the UK. Rob talks about the remarkable life of Abdu’l-Baha and why he feels Abdu’l-Baha was an ambassador to humanity. We talk about Abdu’l-Baha’s time in Egypt, Baghdad, France, and the example He gave us. Rob tells us about his own Baha’i journey, his time in the Holy Land, and we discuss the need to focus locally, and look at how we can follow the example of Abdu’l-Baha. I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did!
