Internet Essay Teaching Opportunity
I was just listening to Arnold Toynbee's Credo on the old radio program "This I believe," and found that it is now a web site on which you can submit your own essay. The guidelines for writing it are at:
I did a search for the word "Baha'i" and found only a few references, listed below. Maybe some of the readers of this blog would be interested in submitting their own credos.
I also did a search for "Bill Sears," since he mentions in God Loves Laughter (a book that I have read aloud seven times to my son, who continues to pester me to read it yet again) that he recorded his own segment for "This I Believe," back in the 1950's sometime. Evidently they do not have the Hand's recording up on the site yet. If anybody knows more about this, please let me know.
