A Warm Place In My Heart
Young Voices on Faith
by Heather Cardin
Heather Cardin asked Bahá'í youth and young adults from around the world to share their thoughts about why they believed and why they were Bahá'ís.
‘The youthful and eager workers for the Cause . . . occupy a warm place in my heart.’
Why have faith? Why practise faith in the world as it is today? What makes a young person in the early part of the 21st century willing to follow a Faith that requires exemplary moral conduct and which views spiritual growth as the purpose of an otherwise very material life?
These are the questions Heather Cardin asked young people around the world. She invited Bahá'í youth and young adults to share their thoughts about why they believed and why they were Bahá'ís.
The answers came from 45 young Bahá'ís between the ages of 13 and 30, from every continent and from many backgrounds. Some have had very positive experiences, others not so positive, but all draw on the power of the love of Bahá'u'lláh and His teachings to give them strength to continue their lives as Bahá'ís.
These are the authentic, powerful voices of young people as they see themselves and the Bahá'í Faith in the 21st century.
