Glorious Saturday
Jalál (Glory), 11 Bahá (Splendor) 175 B.E. - Saturday, March 31, 2018

"This is the changeless faith of God, eternal in the past, eternal in the future."
Baha'u'llah1

By "changeless", I believe that Baha'u'llah is referring to the renewal of religious faith that occurs with each Divine Messenger. Some of the Divine Messenger, that we know about, are Krishna, Abraham, Moses, Zoroaster, Buddha, Jesus Christ, Muhammad, the Bab, and Baha'u'llah. The All-Knowing Creator sent these Holy Ones because the only way for human beings to know God, the Unknowable Creator, is through the Divine Messengers. They each come at a time, when spirituality was fading, to assist the human race on its next stage of spiritual and social evolution.


On this glorious Saturday,
I contemplate the sacrifice
of His Holiness Christ.

I smile
remembering
the Easter Sunday services
at the First Southern Baptist Mission
in the Smelter Height in Blackwell, Oklahoma.

If we commemorated Holy Saturday
it was with a city sponsored an Easter Egg Hunt
at the airport across from my grandparents' house.

In times of trouble
I turn to Baha'u'llah
intone His revealed Words.
