The Devotional Meeting
by Wendi Momen
A timely look at one of the three core-activities of the Five Year Plan.
The spiritualization of humanity is one of the purposes of Bahá'u'lláh. Shoghi Effendi reminds us that 'the core of religious faith is that mystical feeling which unites man with God'. Thus the devotional life of the individual and of the wider community are intertwined, just as the spiritual advancement of the individual and the progress of humanity are connected one with the other.
To enhance these processes, Bahá'ís are called upon to host devotional meetings that are open to all. How can we do this? What does a devotional meeting look like? How does the devotional meeting fit into the pattern of Bahá'í life?
The Devotional Meeting looks at
* the devotional life of the individual
* the Mashriqu'l-Adhkár
* planning devotional meetings
* using music and arts
and provides more than 50 examples of devotional meetings from all parts of the world.
