Story Book

The recent commemoration of several Holy days, brought to mind an old project with several applications.
It was originally envisioned as a home visit booklet project for Book 2, but can also be used for Holy day gifts.

Detailed instructions can be found on Ruhi Resources.

The example shown here has a set of story cards detailing the life of Baha'u'llah, which can be used for both Books 2 and 4 as well for the Birth of Baha'u'llah celebration.

The Booklet with the story cards

A close-up of the cards
So why not make your own story book and a home visit.
Plan to post again soon and would welcome any ideas or stories you may have.

"All Art is a gift of the Holy Spirit."

Another of the occasional quotations on the importance of the Arts to the institute process.

"All Art is a gift of the Holy Spirit. When this light shines through the mind of a musician, it manifests itself in beautiful harmonies. Again, shining through the mind of a poet, it is seen in fine poetry and poetic prose. When the Light of the Sun of Truth inspires the mind of a painter, he produces marvellous pictures. These gifts are fulfilling their highest purpose, when showing forth the praise of God."
(Compilations, The Importance of the Arts in Promoting the Faith)

Our community has just started a children’s class with a Book 3 Study circle running in conjunction for the parents.
This weekend both had memorization exercises, and I resorted to what Juliet calls my cave paintings, although now that I am using clipart they have been elevated to Hieroglyphics.
So without further ado here you go.
From Lesson 4

From Book 3

Let me know if they work for you, or if you have any ideas.
I am working on a few posts but I hope this keeps things going.

More soon
