- 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.
This is a talk called ‘Hope, Faith, and the Afterlife’ given by former member of the Universal House of Justice Mr. Hooper Dunbar at the Persian Conference in Toronto, Canada in May, 2013.
In this talk, Mr. Dunbar shares his thoughts and reflections on what makes us different from each other; forgiving and forgetting each other’s mistakes; becoming an instrument for teaching; essential pioneering in contrast to movement in the world; not giving up on ourselves, and the three stages of divine grace.
Mr. Hooper C. Dunbar was a member of the Universal House of Justice, the governing body of the Baha’i International Community from 1988-2010. Mr. Dunbar is the author of numerous literary works, and he is also an artist whose works have been exhibited at several prominent international venues.
