This is a compilation of perspectives of 19 young adults that attended the Bahai Youth Retreat in Des Moines, Iowa from January 9-11, 2009. Of the 19 youth, 16 were Bahai, 1 was a philosopher, and 2 were seekers. This video is the first of many in response to the Universal House of Justice's request and encouragement to use technology and the internet to further the education of the Bahai Faith to a world of disillusioned souls.
We encourage all Bahai's who view this video to make one of their own for their cluster. In order to maintain consistency, please use the same five questions that we came up with to create this video.
1. State your first name and your religion/spiritual affiliation. If you are a seeker or don't affiliate then you can say that you are "searching".
Ex: "I am John, and I am searching"
2. If you would describe the Bahai Faith in ONE word, what would it be?
3. What does the Bahai Faith mean to you?
4. What is the most profound spiritual truth you have discovered that you want to share with the whole world?
5. Finally, what is your favorite prayer/song and please share it with us.
It is important to keep all answers as brief as possible, but don't limit yourselves too much. You can edit the video later and make it into what you have just seen!
The next step in the process to spread this like wildfire is to set up a vimeo and youtube account. It would be best to set up one per city or state. Get with your clusters and discuss what would be best.
Keep the Title "I Am" but add in parenthesis your city or cluster, so that we can easily find each other easily.
Finally, keep the same tags as below, that way we can all link up! Of course you can add other tags, but try to include the ones at the bottom as well.
Thank you and if you have any more questions, you may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Spread it like wildfire!!!
