Community Building Feb 1, 2021

“Ultimately, the power to transform the world is effected by love, love originating from the relationship with the divine, love ablaze among members of a community, love extended without restriction to every human being. This divine love, ignited by the Word of God, is disseminated by enkindled souls through intimate conversations that create new susceptibilities in human hearts, open minds to moral persuasion, and loosen the hold of biased norms and social systems so that they can gradually take on a new form in keeping with the requirements of humanity’s age of maturity. You are channels for this divine love; let it flow through you to all who cross your path. Infuse it into every neighborhood and social space in which you move to build capacity to canalize the society-building power of Bahá’u’lláh’s Revelation. There can be no rest until the destined outcome is achieved." ~Universal House of Justice, 22 July 2020 to the American Believers

We send you loving greetings! Much has occurred in the last couple of months as we approach the end of the current Five Year Plan; and we celebrate the unswerving commitment of the friends in our region to march forward in "serried lines" to carry out the tasks necessary to move the Faith forward in our region.

Service During Challenging Times

"Therefore, order your lives in accordance with the first principle of the divine teaching, which is love. Service to humanity is service to God. Let the love and light of the Kingdom radiate through you until all who look upon you shall be illumined by its reflection." -Abdu’l-Baha

Savannah, GA

The LSA of Savannah, Georgia formed a Service Task Force Team to work on Service Projects for our Community at large. We read the May 9th letter and we have done at least 4 major projects with the help from our Cluster friends and our youth have also been involved in all projects.

Here are the projects we have done along with pictures:
