Devotional Gatherings:

Drawing on the revitalizing power of the Word of God, devotionals offer an opportunity to rejuvenate one’s soul, gladden hearts, and renew one’s sense of purpose. Communal worship can magnify our experience with the Divine, awaken spiritual susceptibilities, create bonds of love and unity, and engender an atmosphere of free and open discussion on matters of import to the life of each individual.

The Baha’is of Yellow Springs host a community devotional once monthly on Sunday at 11:00 am at the Baha’i Center. Our devotionals consist of reading of Sacred Scriptures, prayer, music, fellowship, and refreshments. There is no established ritual and no request for funds.

All are welcome! See Events Calendar page, ask to be added to our email list, or look in the Yellow Springs News: Religious Announcements for the date.

Home Visits: Devotion and Discussion

This is for those who wish to have a heart to heart talk, want someone to pray with, or perhaps would like to know more about the Baha’i Faith. We have no clergy in the Baha’i Faith, so as each of us learns to minister to the needs of our neighbors it in turn enhances our own spiritual growth. Please invite us as we will be most happy to come, or you have the option of coming to one of our homes as well. (contact)

Frontiers of Learning
Young and old, in cities and villages around the world, are taking part in a process of community building based on concepts enshrined in the Baha’i Teachings. The uplifting film captures the insights and experiences of children, junior youth, youth, and adults—in Canada, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and India —whose efforts to build vibrant communities are at the frontiers of learning.
