- Baha’is believe in the power of prayer and you’ll find Baha’is and their friends, throughout the world, getting together to pray. This is often referred to as a ‘devotional gathering’ or ‘devotional meeting’, and they happen in diverse settings, whether in cities or villages.
The Baha’i World News Service (BWNS) has launched a new podcast series called “In Conversation”. In the latest podcast episode, a group of young people serving at the Baha’i World Centre explore the impact of Baha’i Houses of Worship on community life, sharing their experiences of living near a Baha’i temple in their local communities.
In this episode we hear from Deeba Behrouzi from Canada, Leili Zapata Caldas from Colombia, Pacifique Lolonga from the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Aharna Shoghi from India. They discuss how Baha’i temples give expression to the interplay between service and worship, while inspiring people to contribute to the material and social progress of their society.
You can read all about this new podcast series and this episode in an article by the Baha’i World News Service.
