1932-01-27 John Bosch re purpose of summer schools

No. 63 - June 1932 - page 3

"Shoghi Effendi feels that the real purpose of these Summer Schools is to

deepen the knowledge of the friends. Lectures are very essential for they give a

wonderful picture of the subject matter. But it is not sufficient to have a

picture; the friends should deepen their knowledge and this can be achieved if,

together with the lectures, there are study classes and seminar work carried on by

the same lecturer. The world is undoubtedly facing a great crisis and the social,

economic and political conditions are becoming daily more complex. Should the

friends desire to take the lead in informing the world, they should start by

educating themselves and understand what the troubles and problems really are

which baffle the minds of men. It is in these Summer Schools that this training

should be provided for the friends."
