Did you know that your role as treasurer is key to the growth of the Faith? Shoghi Effendi, in Directives from the Guardian, wrote that, “Without the spirit of real love for Baha’u’llah , for His Faith and its Institutions, and the believers for each other, the Cause can never really bring in large numbers of people.” Elsewhere, Shoghi Effendi, in referring to the National Spiritual Assembly and the National Fund, writes that, “It must be made clear to them all that continuous support to these twin institutions is the corner-stone of all future achievements, the mainspring from which all future blessings will flow.”
What does it mean, then, to love the Fund? This is a great conversation to have with your community at Feast, and with your Assembly to consult on ways to foster and nurture that love in the community. We’d love to hear what you think and what your consultations generate!
