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.
In this talk given by Erica Toussaint-Brock called “Family life: Marriage and Relationships and Childhood Education”, Ms. Toussaint-Brock shares her thoughts about living a coherent life from the standpoint of building civilization. She looks at the roles of the individual, marriage and family in the spiritualization of mankind and in attaining unity in all human relationships, whether it’s achieving the equality of women and men or increasing the stability of marriages.
Erica Toussaint-Brock is best known for her down-to-earth application of the Bahá’í teachings in our everyday life.
