The Age We Live In – A Talk by Dr. Robert C. Henderson

June 18, 2018, in Videos > Talk, by

In this talk titled “The Age We Live In”, Dr. Robert Henderson reflects on the powerful forces which have been released by the Revelation of Baha’u’llah, forces that are coursing through nations — reshaping global order, creating opportunities for growth, and confronting us with destabilizing challenges. He looks at the United States, where the fraying social fabric is evident in the differentiation of human value by race and class and in the sharp decline of conditions needed for marginalized populations to lead safe, healthy, and dignified lives.

Dr. Robert Henderson is Principal Consultant for The Henderson Consulting Group, specializing in the development of high performance corporate organizations. Dr. Henderson is an elected member of the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of the United States, the Baha’i Faith’s senior national administrative institution. He holds a doctoral degree in Education from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

This talk, along with others, was captured at the Association for Baha’i Studies conference in Orange County, California in August 2017.

The Association for Baha’i Studies (ABS) promotes the advanced study of the Baha’i Faith and its application to the needs of humanity, it holds an annual conference and sponsors seminars and symposia, engaging participants from all over North America. It publishes a peer-reviewed journal, The Journal of Baha’i Studies, occasional books and monographs, as well as other publications. It is also engaged in a number of initiatives to advance Baha’i studies among students and young adults and to stimulate broader interest in Baha’i studies.
