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, produced by Bahaiteachings.org, songwriter and musician Jamey Heath shares his truth, describes how he lost everything—and how God allowed him to start rebuilding. Jamey, after “setting fire” to his entire life some years ago, discovered what it takes to be real, authentic and unmasked in the world—to truly struggle, to share his flaws and to stop pretending. “No matter how hard we fall,” Jamey learned, “God always gives us chances to get back up.”
