Reading the Writings of Shoghi Effendi – An Online Study Facilitated by Mr. Hooper Dunbar

August 23, 2020, in Articles > Baha'i Life, by

Former member of the Universal House of Justice, Mr. Hooper Dunbar, is currently facilitating an online study called ‘Reading the Writings of Shoghi Effendi’.

Mr. Hooper Dunbar served as a member of the Universal House of Justice for 22 years, and the youth who had the honor of volunteering at the Baha’i World Centre while Mr. Dunbar was serving on the Universal House of Justice may be familiar with his weekly Thursday night study sessions on various Baha’i topics. In the spirit of those Thursday nights, Mr. Dunbar has started this weekly study class online called ‘Reading the Writings of Shoghi Effendi’, which you can either join live, or watch recordings of them at your own convenience.

Classes are offered weekly on Thursdays at 11:00AM Pacific time.

You can watch the classes being streamed here on Mr. Dunbar’s YouTube Channel:

Would it be possible to convert the talks to mp3 format so we can listen to the talks offline? I’d like to ask Mr. Dunbar but I have no way to reach him.

Hi Leanne,

Great question! While the Baha’i Blog team is happy to share about this initiative, it is organized by other friends and they could best answer your question. As mentioned in the description, there is a Facebook group associated with this study (https://www.facebook.com/groups/3244537872236205) and perhaps your question would best be answered there.

Thanks for your comment and we wish you all the best!
love,
Sonjel
