South Carolina’s Baha’i activities

FLORENCE, S.C. — Author Annette Reynolds wanted to write the memories of a selfless and devoted friend and mentor, but in the process, she discovered about 99 others who had precious memories they also wanted to share. This discovery prompted her to write “Trudy and the Baha’is’ Spiritual Path in South Carolina,” (published by Xlibris) a true story that gives a glimpse into South Carolina’s Baha’i activities beginning in the mid- 1960s.

Told by personal narratives, news stories and archival research, this story revolves around the memories of Trudy, a selfless devotee of the Baha’i Faith. Baha’is’ in South Carolina and from around the world contributed stories of traveling with Trudy and sharing the Baha’i Faith. Baha’is’ from around the world were interested in and visited South Carolina throughout the story’s time frame. Reynolds’ experiences as a native of South Carolina, as well as other South Carolinians add local flavor to the story.

“Baha’is’ in South Carolina like Baha’is’ around the world are building spiritual communities side by side with others to create peaceful communities,” Reynolds explains. “This is a long term learning process that is the challenge of all of humanity — building one world requires the whole community.”

Through the publication of “Trudy and the Baha’is’ Spiritual Path in South Carolina,” Reynolds hopes readers will realize that everyone can work together to build peaceful spiritual communities no matter what belief and background one comes from. Regardless of their social situations, young people have many wonderful powers to contribute to the fortunes of humanity toward peace.
