The quality of compassion was brought alive in song and art by youngsters at yesterday’s (Sunday 6 November) children’s class run by West Berkshire Bahá’í Community.

The children, aged 8 to 11, tapped into their creative side to put their thoughts about compassion to music and drawings.

Myra Erbenova, who leads the classes, said: “Bahá’u’lláh  showed forth compassion at all times, to all people, though His life was filled with suffering.”

The children memorised Bahá’u’lláh’s words: “The Kingdom of God is founded upon equity and justice, and also upon mercy, compassion and kindness to every living soul.”
