One Common Faith

Every age has its needs, its exigencies. Humanity has always turned to God for answers and God has always provided humanity with relative guidance through His Manifestations. These Manifestations include those that have appeared before recorded history, Buddha, Krishna, Zoroaster, Moses, Christ, Mohammed, the Bab and Baha'u'llah. Located where religions have historically been forced to confront each other, India has been a battle-ground for religious turmoil. But like a gem, that is polished through great ordeals, its unity now shines bright. In 'One Common Faith' we meet some of India's religious leaders and hear what they say about the inherent oneness of religious truth, the human family and our collective salvation.

Read the One Common Faith document written by the Universal House of Justice and access a wonderful study companion to the document at ChangelessFaith.com.

Great new web site! I almost lost it, just as I linking this video to a few places in my Luminous Realities blog at http://luminousrealities.blogspot.com/ . I am sending it out as part of my online Ridvan and April greetings to Baha'i and friends.

I really love One Common Faith, the care with which it was made, and the respect it shows to all Faiths. I am hoping it helps me connect with my extended Indian family (through my son's marriage).

I also linked "Inspiration Beyond Borders" in my blog, along with other links for Advancement of Women and domestic abuse.
