A Baha’i Faith Journey
Remarks by Paula Myers
HARC Meeting May 10, 2022
“The Baha’i Faith came to me while reading The Thief in the Night by WM SEARS. It explains the connection of The Bible’s scriptures and the BF writings as God sends another messenger. In the middle of reading that book, I knew I was a Baha’i. Years later, I had the privilege of meeting Wm Sears.
I felt the unity of all, was in my heart. Prejudice was not in my vocabulary. I understood how important it was. A few years later a Bahai friend lent me 2 books. I read those books over and over.
When I asked her where to sign the card, she needed to find out. how I was to declare. This was 1976… I was one of the first few Baha’is in Westminster MD.
The fact that we have no clergy and that women and men are equal, and women are very important, that struck a chord. We are to live the life, and teach the faith in our actions.
When it comes up, we tell our friends and acquaintances about the Faith.”
