- 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, Seaon Shin, a community-builder in the inner-city neighbourhoods of San Francisco shares her deep desire to make an impact on the world. This drive to make the planet a better place, she explains, begins at the grassroots. Believing that you can’t create sustainable social change with one-off events, Seaon and her friends started a junior youth spiritual empowerment program in urban San Francisco, California, helping young people discover their moral framework and carrying forward an inspiring process of individual and community transformation.
If you’d like more information about the Junior Youth Spiritual Empowerment Program that Seaon refers to, check out this short animated video.
