“Stories of Baha’u’llah” is a series of short videos produced by Clark Donnelly and Mary Darling of Westwind Pictures. You may have already seen their work, such as The Baha’is, or Tablets of the Divine Plan. In each video in this sweet and sincere series, a child tells us a story about Baha’u’llah.
This particular video is called “Baghdad Coffee Shop” and we hear about the coffee shops Baha’u’llah frequented when He was exiled in Baghdad.
The “Stories of Baha’u’llah” series, which is downloadable can can be used freely, and is described by Clark and Mary with these words:
Hearts are often moved by the stories of Baha’u’llah’s justice, love, generosity, selflessness, and sacrifice. This experiment, to film children as they share their favorite stories of Baha’u’llah, was inspired by our own children’s interest over the years. Please feel welcome to share these short stories as much as you like, use them in celebrations and however you wish.
