This week’s topic: The Worlds of Truth, Cause, and Creation

The Clearwater, Florida, Baha'i Community is conducting three-Sunday sessions on "The Worlds of Truth, Cause, and Creation" through the Bahá'i and Báb'í Writings. The sessions run on Sunday, 12/4, 12/11, & 12/18, from 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM Pacific Time. The Baháʼí conception of God is essentially monotheistic. God is the imperishable, uncreated being who is the source of all existence. He is described as "a personal God, unknowable, inaccessible, the source of all Revelation, eternal, omniscient, omnipresent and almighty." Though transcendent and inaccessible directly, his image is reflected in his creation. The purpose of creation is for the created to have the capacity to know and love its creator. God communicates his will and purpose to humanity through intermediaries, known as Manifestations (Messengers and Prophets) of God, that have founded religions from prehistoric times up to the present day. The sessions will explore the concepts: Divinity, Divine Unity, The Primal Will, The Seven Stages of Divine Creative Action, The Worlds/Realms of God Stages, and the Types of the Soul. The Presenters are Azadeh Mohandessi-Fares and Nabil Fares from West Sacramento, CA.
