In this talk titled ‘Shaken, Divided, Separated: Reflections on the State of the World’ given by Colleen Dawes at the Justice Conference 2019, Colleen looks at the state of the world through the lens of Baha’u’llah’s Writings, and explores the idea that everything that is happening is a necessary part of the transformation of society.
