Sharing the message of Bahá’u’lláh to the people of the world is one of the two most important tasks a human being can hope to do in this earthly life. The privilege of letting your friends, neighbours, co-workers, classmates, and family members know about the Lord of the Kingdom is a task uniquely prescribed to the Bahá’is. It is an opportunity for which sages and disciples of past ages have dearly longed for. What are we waiting for? This course is designed to fire up the teaching spirit within you.
