FACULTY: Barney Leith, Robert Wilson
‘Abdu'l-Baha referred to the twentieth century as the “century of light” while also forecasting terrible trials for humanity and events of great consequence for humanity’s future. In 2001 the Universal House of Justice released an historical study of the century, noting that between 1900 and 2000 “our world underwent changes,” mostly little understood, “far more profound than any in its preceding history” and, at the same time, the Baha’i Faith emerged from obscurity, “demonstrating on a global scale the unifying power with which its Divine origin has endowed it.” In Century of Light we will review, in the context of the Baha’i teachings, the two processes of the disintegration of an old order and the emergence of a new order and will examine the relationship between them. Our aim will be to tap into a perspective that is “spiritually enriching” and also “of practical help in sharing with others the challenging implications of the Revelation brought by Baha’u’llah." This version of the course will feature additional material on the events and people mentioned in the book.
Discounts are available for early registration and for senior citizens (age 65+), students, and pioneers. If you need a financial-aid discount, write us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Many are available.
You may join our online learning
community as an individual or as part of a study group (2 to 20
people). In either case, you can do all your work at home at any time
of the day or night. We assign mentors to to advise, encourage,
assist, and answer questions. Groups are expected to meet every week
or two for group discussions. Web-based forums connect all
learners--individuals and members of a group--to the insights and
perspectives of fellow students from all over the world.
To form a group, ask some friends whether they'd like to take the course with you. If at least one other agrees, go into the registration system, establish a group, and pay for it. Then email the confirmation number and its web link to the others, so they can click through and add themselves to the group. One person (or a Spiritual Assembly) pays for the group; the group members reimburse the payee based on whatever arrangement the group devises.
Note: All our courses are "asynchronous," which means there is no work that has to be done at a particular time. You can do everything at any time. For more information, go to http://wilmetteinstitute.org/ourcourses/frequently-asked-questions/.
Discounts are available for early registration and for senior citizens (age 65+), students, and pioneers. If you need a financial aid discount, write us at email@example.com. Plenty are available. Registration is limited to 40 people, so sign up today.
