Service

We did service at the Chicago Baha’i Center today.

It was a small group (remarkably smaller than the group that shows up at say….beach volleyball). But we ended up having a good time, ate food, and took care of the Center. I love being able to make sure that the Center is clean and people can come there for any event, and that the children have a place to have children’s classes.

A lot of people don’t realize the work that needs to be done there. It is an old building, and needs a lot of care. Painting, weeding, sanding, light bulb replacement, plumbing, electrical work…the list never ends.

Someday we’ll have a new Center, but for now…this is what we’ve got.

  1. Dude! I’d love to help out next time! I missed one of them by a mere week last summer. I was bummed. But now, the opportunities will be (mostly) endless!

  2. I must agree w/ Mr. J, I very much enjoyed my one and only oppertunity to serve at the Chicago center, even if I did lose a car window and a camera in the process 🙂

  3. I’d love to visit… perhaps when I end up going on pilgrimage to the Temple… here in Ottawa we are still trying to get the money together to purchase a Centre.
