- Baha’is abstain from food and drink between sunrise and sunset for 19 days. While this abstention from food and drink is a test of one’s will and discipline, the Fast is not just about abstaining from food. The Fast is, primarily, a spiritual practice.
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!
