Some have lost every material thing they have ever owned- some have every material thing they need. All are called to a higher purpose than their own individual development: to achieve oneness and unity within this diverse community. Phyllis K. Peterson uses true stories to explain how the Bahai community is learning to develop true intimacy and unity through devotional meetings, reflection meetings and home visits and how it is learning to integrate not only the races but those who are outcast because of mental illness or physical disability.
