Speaker Biography: David Langness is a staff writer and editor at BahaiTeachings.org.
This week’s topic: Teaching the Baha’i Faith Online
When Payam Zamani started the website BahaiTeachings.org in 2012, and brought David Langness on as its first editor, they wanted to utilize the vast reach of the online medium through the written and spoken arts to spread the teachings of Baha’u’llah:
O ye beloved of God! Repose not yourselves on your couches, nay bestir yourselves as soon as ye recognize your Lord, the Creator, and hear of the things which have befallen Him, and hasten to His assistance. Unloose your tongues, and proclaim unceasingly His Cause. – Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, p. 329.
BahaiTeachings.org has now become a powerful global teaching tool for the Faith, with an audience of millions of people, most of them seekers. Join David Langness on Sunday, July 26 as he discusses the imperative to teach the Faith through the written and spoken word, and how individuals and communities can join in: Effort must be made that slumbering souls may be awakened, the heedless become vigilant, and that the divine teachings, which constitute the spirit of this age, may reach the ears of the people of the world, may be propagated in the press and set forth with brilliance and eloquence in the assemblages of men. – Abdu’l-Baha, Selections from the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha, p. 223.
