- 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.
Happyrock is a short documentary by Cormac Mateer. It was made as part of his Bachelor of Digital Media studies. In it, he tells the story of moving from Gladstone to Rockhampton in Central Queensland and how the Bahaʼi Faith helped him with this time of transition.
In the video, Cormac also talks about the Junior Youth Spiritual Empowerment Program.These programs of accompaniment are taking place around Australia (and the world) and are creating a dynamic sense of responsibility, creativity, and empowerment for young people. They can really be quite transformative! For more information on the Junior Youth Spiritual Empowerment Program contact the Baha’is in your area.
If you’re looking for more resources about the Junior Youth Spiritual Empowerment Program or materials specifically for junior youth, we have a special Baha’i Blog collection just for you!
More videos produced by Cormac can be found on his YouTube channel.
