1931-12-25 Public speaking & contacts w/ social movements
USBN #64 - July 1932 - page 4
"Public speaking is undoubtedly very important for a person who desires to
teach, but this should be learned in schools and classes especially arranged for
such training. We should not permit an inferior presentation of the Cause to the
public for the sole reason that we desire to learn to do it better in the future.
The youth should be encouraged to train themselves in public speaking while they
are still pursuing their studies in schools or colleges.
"It is surely very necessary that the friends should keep in touch with the
modern social movements, but their main objective should be to draw more people to
the spirit and teachings of the Cause. They should learn from the experience of
others and not permit themselves to go (off) at a tangent, and finally be so
absorbed in other movements as to forget the Cause of God." (To Mrs. Harding,
Urbana, through Ruhi Afnan. Received December 25, 1931).
