Te Whakakotahitanga o te Rāwhiti (The Unity of the East)

We’ve decided last week, that it is time that we have our own name 🙂 – welcome to Te Whakakotahitanga o te Rāwhiti (The Unity of the East)! We’ll start working on a big ‘name-banner’ over the next few weeks – hoping that everyone can participate in the painting!

In today’s class we learnt about thankfulness. ‘ABdu’l-Bahá tell us that we must be thankful for all of God’s gifts and bounties, even if sometimes they might be difficult. Thankfulness brings peace to our souls. Thanksgiving to God increases our capacity to receive His mercy and attracts greater and greater shares of His bounty.

We practiced the quote on thankfulness, did drama (see some of the great expressions in the pictures above), learnt a new prayer (Blessed is the spot), heard a story (Maya’s new coat), coloured in lots and played a game (CHA!) – all in all, a busy morning!

And thanks to our young photographer, we’ve got lots of images to share with you 🙂

See you all next Sunday…
