Ruhi Book 14 Unit 1

Participating in Public Discourse is the title and theme of Book 14 of the Ruhi Institute, which is is still under development.

Unit 1: The Nature of Our Contributions
This unit provides a basic understanding of what public discourse entails and what spaces can be utilised for this purpose. It brings attention to the importance of drawing on insights from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, and the Guardian, as well as the messages of the Universal House of Justice. Participants touch on the history of the Faith’s involvement in public discourse, before exploring the nature of contributions to public discourse informed by Bahá’í teachings. Approaches to assessing views and theories that speak to the issues under consideration are discussed, as is the importance of a deep commitment to the eradication of prejudice in all its manifestations if truth is to be investigated.
