As a registered Bahá'í in the United States, I am automatically subscribed to The American Bahá'í, a magazine that talks about continuing developments regarding the growth of the Bahá'í Faith in the U.S. In any case, my latest issue of The American Bahá'í came in a plastic bag with a label affixed to it from … Continue reading “the american baha’i” merges with…”automania?”
