I hope to offer downloadable audio in future, but for now I can only direct you to the play button. This audio contains fifteen minutes and eleven seconds of talk talk talk in which I examine the 1992 Ridvan message of the UHJ by the standard of their 2010 admonition that "care should be exercised to avoid overstating the Baha'i experience," and that "the friends should should guard against projecting an air of triumphalism."
I'm a one-time Bahá'í who, due to a complex medical saga and big physical limitations, spends a great deal of time lying around thinking about things. No Bahá'í subject is off-limits to challenge here, but I intend to affirm whatever I can. I explain my approach a bit here. I can't type much; so if I don't respond to comments think not that you are being ignored; think rather that you are getting the last word. If you are not intimate with Bahá'í arcana and want to know what I'm talking about, www.bahai.us is a reasonable starting place. My comments here are primarily about the Haifan or mainstream Baha'i tradition because that is what I know about. There are many other kinds of Baha'is, organized and free-range, and I think all kinds should recognize each other. If you want to know more about me I suggest reading my other blog Heaven in My Foot. I can be reached at p gilman at my fairpoint dot net.
