- 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.
In this talk, produced by Bahaiteachings.org, cultural activist, singer, songwriter and educator Eric Dozier talks and sings about his passion for the power of music to promote healing, justice and racial reconciliation. Eric tells the story of Sam Cooke’s 1963 song “A Change is Gonna Come”, which drew its inspiration from the righteous rage born of discrimination and oppression. Dozier, the former director of the Harlem Gospel Choir, explores how music can act as a window to the soul and create instant community and he challenges us all to get creative together.
