The Nine Year Plan “will test their [the Baha’is] stamina, their willpower, and the strength of their love for those who dwell alongside them.”
“A confluence of circumstances in the world at large and within the Faith has made this a charged moment. The global challenges now facing humanity are a severe test of the willingness to put aside short-term self-interest and come to terms with this stark spiritual and moral reality: there is but one, interconnected human family and it shares one precious homeland. At the same moment, the followers of Baha’u’llah are examining anew the possibilities before them to release the society-building power of the Faith.”
“They will help to nurture, in every place, communities of common purpose that
recognise the power of unity to heal, to transcend.’ Within these communities, every soul may find sanctuary, and in the friends’ many endeavours for worship and praise, for education, for social transformation, for the development of communities–in all these, every soul may find room to grow and to serve.”
