FACULTY: Candace Moore Hill, William Collins
Baha’u’llah, in His Kitab-i-Aqdas, instructed Baha’is to build Houses of Worship, which are dedicated to the praise of God: “The House of Worship forms the central edifice of the Mashriqu’l-Adhkar (the Dawning-place of the Praise of God), a complex which, as it unfolds in the future, will comprise in addition to the House of Worship a number of dependencies dedicated to social, humanitarian, educational, and scientific pursuits." This course will examine the institution of the Mashriqu’l-Adhkar; explore authoritative texts by Baha'u'llah, ‘Abdu'l-Baha, Shoghi Effendi, and the Universal House of Justice about the institution; review the completion of continental Houses of Worship in Turkmenistan, the United States, Uganda, Australia, Germany, Panama, India, Samoa, and Chile and the development of the next seven local and national Houses of Worship now being planned; and explore how the devotional character of a future Mashriqu’l-Adhkar in your community can evolve and flourish.
