Van Gilmer’s remarks on unity were insightful and well spoken. I particularly like his explanation of the number 9 being the highest of the single digit numbers, rather than saying simply that it is the highest number, because it is less confusing. Calling attention to the many symbols and circles of inclusion in the Baha’i House of Worship ornamental structure was a good way to explain the symbolism of unity. Well done!
