- 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.
James Eugene (Jimmy) Seals, one half of the soft rock duo Seals and Crofts, best known for their songs “Summer Breeze” and “Diamond Girl”, has passed away 6 June 2022 aged 79. His family describes him as a musical genius; he could play anything he picked up. Jimmy Seals became a Baha’i along with his bandmate Darrell (Dash) Crofts in 1966.
After concerts, they would invite members of the audience to stay and hear about the Baha’i Faith. After the height of his musical career, Seals and his family moved to Costa Rica to share the transformative message of Baha’u’llah.
We offer our sincere condolences to his wife Ruby and children Joshua, Juliette, and Sutherland.
