May 1, 2021  A new online resource is now available.

“…The US National Spiritual Assembly is pleased to announce the launching of a national website dedicated to celebrating this community’s expressions of love for the Master during this 12 month period. The Remembering ‘Abdu’l-Bahá website, available at this link, offers a variety of resources such as letters of guidance from the Universal House of Justice, films and videos, books and printed materials, and stories from the life of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, the Mystery of God. It also provides a platform for individuals and communities to submit accounts of efforts undertaken in response to the Supreme Body’s call to remember, honor, and emulate the Perfect Exemplar during this “auspicious twelve month(s),” which encompasses the momentous occasion of the Centenary of His Ascension. We trust that the array of insights and experiences you share on the site will inspire others and prompt further bold and thoughtful actions around the country within the varied contexts of community-building activities, projects for social action, and participation in the discourses of society.”   from the April 30, 2021 letter from the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of the US to the American Baha’i community
