PersonalReflectionsBahai-6.5.jpg
My parents were adamant I go out and expose myself to many different religious texts and events as I was nearing 15. It just so happens that where I live, an alliance of local faiths organize their youths annually to travel around town together and spend an hour at different places of worship, like a Buddhist temple, synagogue, church, Baha’i Center, etc. and receive a brief presentation at each. I was 14 during one of these experiences traveling to the different spiritual places, many of which I didn’t know were so close to my home - and seeing their connection and the faces of so many people that were on different but similar spiritual journeys was really something for me. It was like the culmination of everything I had read or discussed in the Baha’i Faith. It is still one of the best experiences of my life!
