(US, TX and TN, 14 May)

“Anna’s Presentation” is an introductory explanation of the Bahá’í Faith that clearly and directly presents some of its main verities. Throughout the country, the believers have found it an effective tool when engaging in door-to-door teaching. However, in many places, the friends are also finding Anna’s Presentation useful in other venues, such as proclamation events, firesides, Holy Day celebrations.

For example, the following is a report from the San Antonio cluster (TX):

“At the 12th Day of Ridvan celebration given at the Bahá’í Center, a beautiful and inviting atmosphere was present. A seeker at the Holy Day festivities declared after listening to Anna’s presentation. Other people who attended also inquired about the Faith and requested to know more.”

Further, a friend in the Knoxville cluster (TN) shares:

“We are using Anna’s presentation in our fireside and trying to encourage more friends to incorporate it in small or large firesides.”

When delivering the glad tidings, speak out and say: the Promised One
of all the world’s peoples hath now been made manifest. For each and
every people, and every religion, await a Promised One, and Bahá’u’lláh
is that One Who is awaited by all; and therefore the Cause of
Bahá’u’lláh will bring about the oneness of mankind, and the tabernacle
of unity will be upraised on the heights of the world, and the banners
of the universality of all humankind will be unfurled on the peaks of
the earth. When thou dost loose thy tongue to deliver this great good
news, this will become the means of teaching the people.

– Abdu’l-Baha, SWAB 101
