ALL THAT WAS LEARNED ON THAT OCCASION

"all that was learned on that occasion [the bicentenary of the birth of Bahá'u'lláh in October 2017] must be channelled into the plans for the Twin Holy Birthdays this year." (Ridván 2019)

The Twin Holy Birthdays this year are, for the Báb, at sunset on Oct 28 -> 29, and for Bahá'u'lláh, at sunset the 29th -> 30.

What have we learned from 2017's efforts? 

To be filled with love for others. To be filled with excitement about the events that we are holding for others - ongoing events and annual events. To plan carefully and be peaceful at the event. Pray, especially when confused or frustrated. Take Actions. Consult. Invite everyone sincerely. And be ok with what happens. A friend's beloved cat was taken to the emergency room, other friends were not available. One friend didn't expect to come, did make it! To make things beautiful, peaceful, special. (Loved the lemonade and beautiful display that Connie and Claudia made.) 

How do we channel it? 

"Learning to be systematic and focused is a challenge that all those involved in development efforts, from a small group to the community itself, have to meet." (Social Action 2012)
