RT @bahaibic: For #ClimateWeekNYC: a quick look back at our publication "One Planet, One Habitation", and @alopezclaros's contribution at Stockholm+50 in June: “We have a flawed institutional framework for cooperation, to address a problem which does not recognize international borders."
RT @bahaibic: Root causes of the peace & security and climate crises are interconnected, said BIC Representative @LNkunzimana: “lack of appreciation of humanity's shared identity, over reliance on competitive models, and … incomplete notions of progress.” #UNGA77

A few people have been pointing out that today marks the Martyrdom of the Báb, a Bahá'í holy day, as well as Eid al-Adha (the Feast of Abraham's sacrifice), a Muslim holy day. Not only are both occasions very significant, but they both have to do with sacrifice. #Bahai #Islam #interfaith #religion #holidays

I've been trying to use this account to follow people who are interested in chatting about religious and #interfaith topics, and so far it's going slowly but surely. It's pretty obvious that religion's not a very popular topic on fedi; when it is discussed, it often revolves around tribalistic views of religion as cultural affiliation group and/or ideological combat platoon.
What if #religion could evolve beyond the tribe, to encompass the sublime reality of a world-embracing human family?
The world is at present in an exceedingly dark condition spiritually; hatred and prejudice, of every sort, are literally tearing it to pieces. We, on the other hand, are the custodians of the opposite forces, the forces of love, of unity, of peace and integration, and we must constantly be on our guard... lest through us these destructive, negative forces enter into our midst. #inspiration #quotes #bahai
‘Abdu’l-Bahá, son of the founder of the Bahá'í Faith, revealed several prayers for the United States of #America, asking God to render it spiritually glorious and to enable it to "upraise the standard of the oneness of humanity". #Bahai #Prayer #Meditation #Goals
Join me on weekends for chats on a variety of interfaith and religious topics.
A space where people of all faith backgrounds can come together and grow together.
