SOTW Vol 14 #5, p156

The beloved of the Lord and the handmaids of the All Merciful in Brooklyn, N. Y., U. S. A.

Care of the members of the Spiritual Assembly

Dear brethren and sisters in 'Abdu’l-Baha:

In these days of world unrest, of political upheavals, of social disruption and spiritual ferment, the one Power that can bind effectively together the scattered and conflicting elements of human society and breathe into them the vivifying and eternal Spirit of Life is indeed the power of the Call of Ya Baha’il-Abha!

We, of this noble Faith, the chosen ones of God, who carry with us this wholesome Medicine for the ills and sicknesses of this world, must now bestir ourselves to further activity and relentless efforts in the great and urgent mission entrusted to us by Baha’u’llah, that we may minister freely and effectively to the needs of mankind .

Our primary duty is to create by our words and deeds, our conduct and ex· ample, the atmosphere in which the seeds of the words of Baha'u'llah and 'Abdu’l-Baha, cast so profusely during well-nigh eighty years, may germinate and give forth those fruits that alone can assure peace and prosperity to this distracted world.

Clear in our vision, broad in our out look, tireless in our energies and steadfast in our hopes, let us promote one and all this great work of Reconciliation of which the world stands in such groat need at present.

May the Light of His Divine Guidance illumine our path and lead us to our glorious destiny.

Your brother,
