- 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 Public Discourse is a podcast produced by the Office of Public Affairs for the Baha’i Community of Canada. In it, we hear from people across Canada about the values and principles that inform the way they are thinking about society, and how we can create a better public discourse.
On this episode, we hear from Ana Serrano and Shabnam Tashakor about the role of the community in responding to coronavirus, and the values they hope will characterize our future society. Serrano holds leadership positions with the Canadian Film Centre and Open Democracy Project, and Tashakor is a member of the Baha’i Continental Board of Counsellors for the Americas.
