Lesson 15 : Trust in God
This is the last lesson of the Ruhi Book 3 programme – and a beautiful way to round up everything we’ve learned. Putting our trust in God and committing our affairs into his keeping.
The word ‘affairs’ took a bit of exploring with the children – what are our affairs? Are they the things we think about, worry about, get caught up with….? Our fears, our longings, everything that keeps our minds, hearts and souls busy? We figured that there isn’t one correct answer, and maybe they are different ‘things’ for different people.
The children learned the quote of today (see box on the right) in record time. Well done everyone! We then moved on to do some arts/crafts – a beautifully decorated prayer, which we attached to a little paper stand, so we can have it our our night tables, or where we can see it easily.
With the children’s amazing track record of memorising, we might need to tackle the prayer from the art activity next time… 🙂
We finished our lesson with a story from Ruhi Book 3 – about a father (Sina) and his son (Habib), travelling together to visit some Baha’is in a village far afield. The travel was hard going, the weather miserable and on top of it all Sina got sick. His son took him to a village where they knew noone, but were warmly received and looked after. It turned out, that the whole village was Baha’i too, and all ended well – an example of how when we put our trust in God, he will be there to help and guide us.

Next week we will start with lesson 1 again (Unity) exploring many more ways to learn about the virtues and principles taught in them. See you all then! 🙂
