*OH-30 Cluster Goals for cycle beginning May 1, 2021

With an intent of establishing an longer-term intensive program of growth and welcoming larger numbers to the Faith, the participants at this first OH-30 Inter-Institutional Meeting are proposing a framework for action that focuses on ‘Abdu’l-Baha and His Role as the Center of the Covenant in a cluster-wide initiative by
· Increasing our Institutional collaboration with our Board members
· Supporting and encouraging wide-spread study of Book 8, The Covenant of Baha’u’llah
· Encouraging our capacity to have conversations about the Master, including regular sharing of stories about the Abdu’l-Baha
· Extending prayer rings/prayer circles to include a greater number of participants from the wider community
· Strengthening collaborations among the Institutions and agencies in the cluster
· Inviting the Representative of Huquq’u’llah to present information about the Law of God and to share relevant stories related to the Covenant
· Committing both OH-30 Assemblies to participate in the upcoming June 12-13 Assembly Development gathering
Obviously, some plans are specific to Assemblies and/or the Institutions. Others, including the study of Book 8, sharing of stories about ‘Abdu’l-Baha and the Covenant, and extending prayer rings to embrace even more of the wider community, is for each of us to consider.
