theme: introducing study circles
study
about study circles
what might some possibilities be for starting study circles with parents?
what kind of format would make it easy for many parents to attend?
kamala and sami responded positively to the quotes, but were not responsive to the idea of starting a study circle (were simply quiet). not sure, maybe it was too soon to introduce a new activity/time commitment? maybe better to continue fostering conversations about prayer and devotionals, and start saying prayers together at the park.

introductions
brief introduction to the activities:
purpose of all the activities is to nurture our personal growth and to develop capacity for service. this is achieved through study and action suited to the needs of each age group.
children’s classes
: stories, cooperative games, drama, and arts/crafts. each lesson is focused on one spiritual quality or habit. weekly on saturdays.
junior youth groups
: stories about young people their own age and how they navigate challenges in their lives. building bonds of friendship and learning to work together to carry out acts of service. weekly on saturdays. other occasional meetings for service and complementary activities.
youth group / training
: study and discussion to explore questions related to the life of the spirit, and how our personal development and the well being of our community are connected to one another. training to facilitate classes for children and groups for junior youth. weekly groups and periodic camps for intensive study and training.
parent group
: discussions on themes of spiritual growth, family, and community. also identifying ways to support the activities.
ideas for supporting activities:
inviting friends & family to join
other ideas?
weekly space for parents - any ideas about things you would like to discuss together
parents had a space to share their aspirations and concerns for their children
the qualities they want them to have, putting them in action, the world is harsh
the role of the parent, how to help them learn
the role of the community
very involved parents, know about their kids
they want a different life for their children than they had, not dictated by deference to elders
a lot of conversation about helping their children discover what they want to do
Baha’i Faith was brought up
independent investigation of the truth
Yessy learns from different religions
spiritual and intellectual excellence, or heart and mind
