- 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.
A documentary about the Baha’i Faith that focuses on faith in action: “Let deeds not words be your adorning” (Baha’u’llah). This documentary profiles the lives of three South African Baha’is from different social and racial backgrounds who each exemplify at least one principle of the Baha’i Faith in action: These principles include: the equality of women and men, the education of (girl) children and the elimination of the extremes of wealth and poverty. A look at the lifestyles and daily choices of these featured Baha’is reveals that the Baha’i faith offers practical solutions to today’s global problems. Some of these specific solutions are portrayed first hand as we follow our protagonists who live out their faith through their various careers and pastimes. In short, BAHA’I FAITH, A WAY FORWARD shows how faith can transcend the murmur of prayers and syllables and can translate into concrete steps that promote global unity and prosperity.
