At a time of rapid change in the world today, humanity needs, more than ever, a unifying vision of the nature and purpose of our lives and of the future of our society. Such a vision unfolds within the writings of Baha’u’llah, the Prophet Founder of the Baha’i Faith.
The Baha’i community of Oxford is exploring Baha'u'llah’s spiritual teachings with people of all backgrounds and is learning how these teachings can be translated into action for the betterment of neighbourhoods and communities.
We cannot segregate the human heart from the environment outside us and say that once one of these is reformed everything will be improved. Man is organic with the world. His inner life moulds the environment and is itself also deeply affected by it. The one acts upon the other and every abiding change in the life of man is the result of these mutual reactions.
