1932-10-27 "United Will and Concerted Action"
No. 69 - December 1932 - page 1
Words of Shoghi Effendi to the Chairman of the National Spiritual Assembly
"I am deeply conscious of the many obstacles that stand in the path of the
American believers in their stupendous endeavor to attain their goal - a goal on
which our dearly beloved Greatest Holy Leaf had set her fondest hopes. I cannot,
however, overlook, much as I sympathize with them in their financial tribulations
and anxieties, the mysterious power that resides in the united will and concerted
action of all the members of that self-sacrificing community - a community which,
since the passing of Abdu'l-Baha, has put an impetus to the advancement of the
Cause out of all proportion to its numerical strength, its youthfulness, and
experience of the powers latent in this sacred Faith. What an untold wealth of
blessings will flow out of a renewed, an irrevocable resolution, representing the
combined will of all the steadfast lovers of the Cause of God in that land, to
carry out in its entirety during the few remaining months a Plan on which so much
that is vital to its world-wide interests depend? The American believers, the
stout-hearted supporters of the Faith of Baha'u'llah, have already given too many
evidences of their preponderating influence in the direction of its affairs to
allow the slightest disappointment to mar the radiance of their past achievements.
Their will to succeed must eventually triumph."
