Learning About Growth

The Story of the Ruhi Institute and large-scale expansion of the Bahá’í Faith in Colombia, 1991.

In Learning About Growth, the Ruhi Institute describes its conceptual framework and its programs, tells the story of one national community’s efforts to maintain large-scale expansion, and analyzes the lessons it has learned. In reading it, one appreciates the fact that it makes no claim to present a model for emulation; its value lies in its systematic description of a process that in one way or another has been repeated wherever Bahá’ís have labored to bring about large-scale growth of the Faith. People, of course, need to create their own experience, and move with it as they learn and grow in knowledge and wisdom. Yet, the sharing of experience is extremely valuable. Reflection on the dynamics of the efforts of others yields insights into the causes of crisis and victory in one’s own endeavors....Show More

The Story of the Ruhi Institute and large-scale expansion of the Bahá’í Faith in Colombia, 1991.

In Learning About Growth, the Ruhi Institute describes its conceptual framework and its programs, tells the story of one national community’s efforts to maintain large-scale expansion, and analyzes the lessons it has learned. In reading it, one appreciates the fact that it makes no claim to present a model for emulation; its value lies in its systematic description of a process that in one way or another has been repeated wherever Bahá’ís have labored to bring about large-scale growth of the Faith. People, of course, need to create their own experience, and move with it as they learn and grow in knowledge and wisdom. Yet, the sharing of experience is extremely valuable. Reflection on the dynamics of the efforts of others yields insights into the causes of crisis and victory in one’s own endeavors. This document is of particular value for such reflection, as in telling its story, the Ruhi Institute avoids the duality of success and failure and analyzes its progress in terms of the constant interplay of crisis and victory.
