1932-03-14 appeal regarding new Plan

USBN #61 - April 1932 - page 1

March 14, 1932

Dear and valued co-workers:

I grieve, beyond words, to learn of the scanty response of the friends to

the Plan of Unified Action to which the sacred interests of the Faith are at

present so vitally and closely related. I am acutely conscious of the

unprecedented character of the depression under which you labor. I am fully aware

of the sacrifices you have already made, and realize the urgent need of allaying

the burden which weighs so heavily on some of the poor and distressed believers.

But I realize also the uniqueness of the opportunity which it is our privilege to

seize and utilize. The world is watching the progress of our Faith and the steady

expansion of our institutions. The eyes of countless men and women, both high and

low, whether in the East or in the West, friendly or critical, are fixed upon the

Mashriqu'l-Adhkar, eager and expectant to know whether the growing vicissitudes

and the successive crises that afflict your country are such as to deflect the

American believers from their high purpose or to paralyze their efforts in the

prosecution of their sacred task. Ours is the duty to vindicate the vitality and

invincible power of our Faith.
