DEVOTIONALS: In the Baha’i Faith we have no clergy so various members of the community offer to host devotionals. (decide on a topic, choose writings & music from sacred scriptures.) We also don’t interpret the Sacred Scripture for others so we do not have sermons. We do however share our thoughts through discussion either as part of the devotional or during the fellowship portion.
Prayer offered both in private and in the company of others, is regarded as essential spiritual nourishment, providing inspiration for positive personal and social change. In the Baha’i Faith there are no sacraments and virtually no rituals. At devotional gatherings scripture may be read from the Baha’i sacred writings as well as other holy books such as the Bible and the Quran. Baha’is use the prayers revealed by the Báb, Bahá’u’lláh and ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. There is no congregational recitation of prayers unless the prayer has been put to music and is sung. Others may be invited to offer a prayer from their spiritual tradition as well.
