Richmond Upon Thames Children's Classes Baha'i Children's Classes

The aim of Bahá’í children’s classes, then, is to nurture the tender hearts and minds of children by helping them to develop spiritual qualities and the habits and behaviours that constitute the essential attributes of a spiritual being.

Children are the most precious treasure a community can possess, for in them are the promise and guarantee of the future. They bear the seeds of the character of future society

Bahá’ís see the young as the most precious treasure a community can possess. In them are the promise and guarantee of the future.

 

Children are born in a state of potentiality, ready to develop their unique spiritual qualities in order to contribute to the welfare of society. ‘Abdu’l-Bahá stated that “the hearts of all children are of the utmost purity,” and that “they are mirrors upon which no dust has fallen”. Like a young plant or tree, children will grow and develop based on the training they receive and the influences they experience. Nurturing children, in both the community and at home, is integral to the life of the community, for children “bear the seeds of the character of future society”.
