June 18, 2023 will mark 40 years since 10 Baha’i women were hanged in Shiraz. Their only ‘crime’ was their refusal to renounce their beliefs in a faith that promotes the principles of gender equality, unity, justice, and truthfulness. This collection highlights Baha’i Blog content relating to the ongoing persecution of Baha’is in Iran.
Service to humanity is an act that springs from a love for all humanity and a recognition of its oneness. In this collection, we explore the themes and perspectives around this critical spiritual principle.
“A Day of Service” is a short film that depicts a day of service in a Baha’i village in North-Western Zambia. The video was produced by a team of international filmmakers with the support of the Baha’is of Mwinilunga.
The Mwinilunga cluster is vibrant and bright: you can read about the dynamism of this area in this Baha’i World News Service story or listen to some of the joyful and energetic songs this village has created here on Baha’i Blog. This film, performed by the local Baha’is in the Lunda language, shows what a day filled with service might look like.
