Podcast 5: Striving for Peace

On October 21, 1911, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá spoke to a small group of friends about the pitiful causes of war, and the duty of everyone to strive for peace. He said, I charge you all that each one of you concentrate all the thoughts of your heart on love and unity. When a thought of war comes, oppose it by a stronger thought of peace. A thought of hatred must be destroyed by a more powerful thought of love.  Also in this podcast is the story of Thomas Breakwell, as told from the perspective  of May Maxwell.

Full talk available here.
