Michael Mathein, Timothy Alford and I are great friends here on the Emerald Coast. They both live in Fairhope, Alabama. Their part of the coast was very much affected by the 2004 and 2005 hurricanes so I haven't seen much of them lately. It was great to talk with them for an hour.
We talked about the concept of a personal God, what it meant to us as Christians, and how that concept evolved after we became Baha'is.
Here's a link to authoritative information about the Baha'i concept of God. (Just in case we got it wrong :-)
We mentioned the Ringstone Symbol during the podcast. Here's a link to the Ringstone Symbol and other Baha'i symbols, with explanations.
We're having fun doing these firesides so we're working on a few more. Let me know if you've got any ideas or if you'd like to participate. People keep asking about having a Christian seeker join a fireside. We'd love to have one of you do that. I realize that it's asking a lot, but if one of our Christian friends would like to join us, it would be great to have some hard questions to answer.
If you'd rather not participate but would still like to ask hard questions--call our toll-free line listed on the left side of this page.
Love to all,
