‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s Journey So Far: Month Four

Highlights from the fourth month of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s journey through America.

TODAY MARKS THE END of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s fourth month in America. We thought we’d take this opportunity to look back at some of the highlights of the past month.

On Day 94, a feature entitled “Every Child Is Potentially the Light of the World” noted that for ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, the moral education of children is paramount to the creation of a successful civilization.

Religion: The Greatest Cause of Human Alienation covered ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s address to one of the largest congregations in Brooklyn.

We took a look at the Progressive Era in 1912: A Year Supreme with Possibilities, then covered ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s argument for enlightened leadership in The Secret of Divine Civilization.

On July 24, to the Theosophical Society in Boston, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá argued for ‘Abdu’l-Bahá: Science Proves the Human Spirit.

Our story then moved to the scenic environs of Dublin, New Hampshire, which we covered in a series of features, including: A Sleepy Morning in Dublin, New Hampshire, The Modern Science of Breeding Better People, A Different Side of America, and Out and About in Dublin.

We also returned to our theme of race in a pair of features: Being Black in the Progressive Era, and Get the Races to Intermarry.

On Day 116, we shared some observations on our approach to discovering and portraying ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, in The Challenges of Finding ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. We thank our readers for the generous comments you posted on this day.

Finally, we did a piece on labor entitled Socialism, Strikes, and Oscar Wilde.

‘Abdu’l-Bahá has now passed the halfway mark on his journey through America. We look forward to having you join us for the final four months. And please, join the conversation!
