Detachment was such a big subject to be studied that it was spread over two Sundays – 20 November and 4 December – for the children’s classes run by West Berkshire Bahá’í Community.
Youngsters in the eight to 11 age group played games, sang a song, heard a story and memorised the quotation from Bahá’u’lláh: “Know that they true adornment consisteth in the love of God and in thy detachment from all save Him…” The Summons of the Lord of Hosts, pages 96-138: gr256.
Myra Erbenova, who leads the classes, said: “We should make use of all the bounties that God has given us and be thankful to Him for the joy of living. But we should be careful not to become attached to this world. Our souls must be free at all times.”
