25 September - Baha'i Children's Classes

We met today at the Hinman Park (I can't for the life of me recall what its new name is), and played and then sang!

We sang a song about a tiny seed, which springs forth from the soil of God's Love by the Hand of His Bounty.

As we were singing, a little inch-worm landed in Olivia's hair, and then found its way to Amia's palm, where it was loved a little too tightly. We sang a little song about an inch-worm in tribute, hoping another one would come our way and, lo, and behold, onto Sarah's forehead sprang another inch-worm friend!

The natural world is such a wonderful way to teach children about spiritual qualities. Which is one of the reasons that I think we as a society are having a difficult time connecting with said qualities - we are so removed from the cycles of nature, and the lessons that they bring!
