USA Bahá’í Youth

Our purpose is to study the Baha’i Writings and to Deepen upon them.

We are starting on the subject of the Dawn-Breakers and mastering this important history of the Baha’i Faith. Links to the recorded sessions will be made available after each group session for those that can’t make it or that miss any of the regularly scheduled sessions. It’s Important for Youth to understand that the Dawn-Breakers established, “The New World Order,” with their lives. As difficult as life can be at times, we should understand that we are their spiritual decendents and as such we should strive to live our lives in as much as we can be the dawn-breakers for America!

Access to the videos and the session zoom links will only be made available to those members in the Facebook Group! This is to protect the privacy of the participants and to limit disruptions to our study sessions by “trolls” or “bad actors”.

Please see the article written by Graham Nicholson, published in Baha’i Studies in Australasia vol.3, Roseberry: Association for Baha’i Studies Australia, 1996. This presentation focuses on the term, “new world order,” which during those years had become more common in usage; however, it is less so today.
