- 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.
In this talk, shared by the Baha’is of Santa Monica (California, US), Judge Dorothy Nelson speaks about her experiences using consultation and mediation in the American justice system.
Judge Dorothy Nelson served for many years on the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of the United States. She was the first female law professor and the first woman to work as dean of a major American law school. In her talk, Judge Dorothy Nelson explores how she became a Baha’i, and she shares her love of consultation and her work using mediation to solve disputes.
