Family of Mr. Farhang Amiri

Farhang Amiri, 63, was murdered outside his home on 26 September 2016 in the city of Yazd, Iran, where he and his family have long resided. “He was known among his neighbors for his kindness, gentleness, wisdom, and humility,” said Ms. Bani Dugal, Principal Representative of the Baha’i International Community to the United Nations.

Making the Right Choices


It is not always easy to make choices about the direction of our lives. One voice may tell us to rise to the excellence and another, equally strong, may try to keep us down. The junior youth have recently been exploring the tools that help us listen to the right voice and discussed and memorised the following quote: “Noble have I created thee, yet thou hast abased thyself. Rise then unto that for which thou wast created.”

As we rise to excellence, we find many spiritual forces at our command. One of these forces is kindness and the youth discussed the effect of a simple act of kindness on them and on others. What followed was their dramatic and entertaining interpretation of the story of Androcles and the lion.

The weather was also kind to them, so there was lots and lots of basketball playing on that Sunday.

Prayers for Children


Recently, the children at the Newbury’s Children Class have been studying the topic of a Prayer. They now know that it is the ‘greatest longing of every soul’ and have been doing a number of activities to reinforce the subject. The regular Children Classes are open to all children aged 5-11 and provide them with spiritual and moral education.

Children Classes


It is the greatest longing of every soul who is attracted to the Kingdom of God to find time to turn with entire devotion to his Beloved, so as to seek His bounty and blessing and immerse himself in the ocean of communion, entreaty and supplication

A Prayer



Intone, O My servant, the verses of God that have been received by thee,
as intoned by them who have drawn nigh unto Him, that the sweetness of thy melody may kindle thine own soul, and attract the hearts of all men
