    Today I’m declaring

    Today I’m becoming Baha’i. I just fill out a form saying “I declare my belief in Bahá’u’lláh as the Manifestation of God for this age.” It's a simple statement but with many layers of meaning. On one level, it’s the start of a new journey. After years of being tossed about on waves of doubt and...
