How Can You Use Web Talks to Present Baha’u’llah’s Unifying Teachings?

Most of us know that the Universal House of Justice and our National Spiritual Assemblies are increasingly urging us to “present the unifying teachings of Bahá’u’llah” to our fellow-citizens in the run-up to the celebrations of the Twin Birthdays in October 2017. How, exactly, you may be wondering, can you use Wilmette Institute Web Talks to do just that? We have two suggestions. One, listen to the talks yourself to educate yourself about issues in which your friends and seekers are interested. Two, invite the same individuals to listen to the talks with you, and let the conversation flow.

Categories are always fluid. Web Talks on history and society and social change are all grounded in the Bahá’í writings. Here are some categories from which to choose:

Society and Social Change

World Religions: An Integrated Approach

History and Biography

Exploring Bahá’u’lláh’s Transforming Revelation

Bahá’í Perspectives on the Arts and Literature

Bahá’í Thought

Each Web Talk has links to: (1) a short description of the talk and biographical information about the speaker; (2) the Web Talk itself; (3) many times a longer review article about the talk; and, often, (4) supplementary materials related to the talk. Chronological lists of Web Talks given in 2015, 2016, and 2017.
