Immerse yourselves in the ocean of My words, that ye may unravel its secrets,
and discover all the pearls of wisdom that lie hid in its depths.

Today in Bahá'í History
This is a new feature in the making and I'm going to need help. The idea is a page for Bahá'í History. I can certainly set it up to pop-up on the appropriate days, but the sheer size of the information gathering is more than I can manage by myself.
For example, the Holy Days are easier: May 29 — Ascension of Bahá'u'lláh.
But other days it would be of interest to know: May 11, 2007 Passing of Samoan head of state, His Highness Susuga Malietoa Tanumafili II A follower of the Bahá'í Faith, he was one of the longest reigning monarchs in the world. He was 94 years old . The old Bahá'í History calendars had dates from The DawnBreakers where it commemorated when the Báb was sent from one place to another. When and where martyrdoms occured. When and where dedications of the temples occured, Hands of the Cause visted, the path of `Abdu'l-Bahá's vist to Europe and North America. Establishment of National Spiritual Assemblies. The list went on, and I am excited about this project.
And that's when I realized that this was far too large a project to attempt without help. Especially help from more scholarly sources, individuals and perhaps institutions.
So I am asking that news bits of Bahá'í importance be sent to this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll try to sort it all out as it comes in. The page is set up at Bahá'í History although at present it is mostly blank.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give, and stay tuned. I can see this evolving over many months, even years.
