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 address called ‘The Individual, the Institutions & the Community: The Three Protagonists of the Plan’ by Dr. Janet Khan, given at the Heroes Teaching Conference held in Brisbane, Australia (6-7 April, 2019), Dr. Khan explores questions such as: How is the relationship of these three protagonists redefined in the Divine Plan? How is this different from what we are observing in the world? What characterizes the relationship between the three protagonists in the Baha’i community? How should those serving the institutions of Bahaullah’s World Order view their function and their role? How do they express this? What is the relationship of the individual, the institutions and the community to the Head of the Faith – the Universal House of Justice?
The Heroes Teaching Conference was an historic gathering of over 1,000 Baha’i adults, youth, junior youth and children, as well as some of their like-minded friends from all over Southern Queensland and Northern New South Wales, Australia. Organised by the Regional Baha’i Council and Board of Counsellors, the program aimed to help its participants find their place in service to Baha’u’llah and humanity, by drawing on the heroism of the past, inspiring them to arise, through humble service, and become heroes of the Faith for this age.
