June 18, 2023 will mark 40 years since 10 Baha’i women were hanged in Shiraz. Their only ‘crime’ was their refusal to renounce their beliefs in a faith that promotes the principles of gender equality, unity, justice, and truthfulness. This collection highlights Baha’i Blog content relating to the ongoing persecution of Baha’is in Iran.
The team at BahaiTeachings.org has produced a dynamic panel discussion called “Are you spiritual or religious?” hosted by Payam Zamani. Along with musical guests Jamey Heath and Shadi Toloui-Wallace, panelists include author Dr. Joy DeGruy, entrepreneur Seaon Shin, actor Masud Olufani, nonprofit leader Layli Miller-Muro, and student Khadem Badiyan, who recently recovered from COVID19. In this discussion, they explore why so many have walked away from religion while still seeking spirituality.
