Ruhi Book 12 Unit 1

Family & the Community

The twelfth book in the main sequence of courses offered by the Ruhi Institute focuses on the family as a fundamental and indispensable unit of society and the mainstay of community life.

The act of service addressed in the second and third units of this book is that of initiating and promoting conversations among groups of families, first on the subject of raising children and then on the coherence which we all have to achieve in our lives between the spiritual and the material - a particularly crucial question for the youth of the community who, before long, will form families of their own.  In this first unit, we will endeavour to glean from the Writings those basic concepts that pertain to Bahá’í marriage.
