Episode 24: My essay 'Me and The Prophet'
Play • 32 min
Hello and welcome to the Baha’i Blogcast with me your host, Rainn Wilson. In this series of podcasts I interview members of the Baha’i Faith and friends from all over the world about their hearts, and minds, and souls, their spiritual journeys, what they’re interested in, and what makes them tick. In this particular episode I wanted to do something a little different, as right now, millions across the globe are celebrating the 200th Anniversary of the Birth of Baha'u'llah, the founder of the Baha’i Faith, and I wanted to honor this very special occasion. Above our front doorway is a handwritten “Greatest Name”, drawn by the son of Hand of the Cause Mr. Samandari as a gift to my grandparents. As I walk into my house I think about the fact that as a baby (albeit a giant, pale one), I met Mr. Samandari who traveled to Seattle in 1967, and he was the last living person who had spent time with Baha’u’llah. I wanted to write about this remarkable connection: I was once cradled as an infant by the guy who met THE GUY! That’s how young our Faith is. How connected we all are. As Baha'is we strive to be in discussion and dialogue on shared topics of interest with like-minded folks, so I really wanted to write a warm, funny essay that every person could connect to. It was imperative that it be published on a site where there was a good deal of interfaith dialogue and I was drawn to Patheos.com for this reason, and you can find this essay here. I've decided to record the essay for this episode, and I just wanted to add that I think it’s crucial that Baha’is seek to share our history, views, humor and stories with as many different communities as possible, in as many different ways as we can. Engage in deep dialogues with open-hearted souls with the goal being the dialogue itself, not “conversion”. I hope you enjoy “Me and the Prophet.” To find out more about some of the things I covered in this episode, check out the following links: * Here is the official Baha'i site on Baha'u'llah, the prophet-founder of the Baha'i Faith: www.bahai.org/bahaullah * Here is the official site for the bicentenary of the Birth of Baha'u'llah celebrations happening around the world: https://bicentenary.bahai.org/ * Here is the official site for the Baha'i Faith: http://www.bahai.org/ * Here's a Baha'i Blog article about what a 'Hand of the Cause' is: http://bahaiblog.net/site/2014/06/hands-cause/ * Here's a Baha'i Blog article about what 'the Greatest Name' is and its use: http://bahaiblog.net/site/2011/06/using-the-greatest-name/ Be sure to ‘subscribe’ to the Baha’i Blogcast for more weekly episodes on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify and YouTube.

42a - Johannes Brahms pt. 8 "The Scent of Lilac"
Ep. 42(a) - It is late November 1862. We find Johannes Brahms in Vienna making a great success of himself for once but reeling from a devastating blow given him by the musical establishment of Hamburg. He will try to pick himself up and carry on with his work, compartmentalizing the tenderness he felt for one place from the bitterness for the other so that he might do so. And then further troubles to deal with: family strife and division that will make his life more difficult than ever; a loss that will wrench his heart and cause him the greatest pain, one for which tears aplenty would not be an adequate response but rather, music; tones and song in memoriam of a cherished loved one on a grand scale. --------------- Try MuseScore 3.6!

You can send a written comment along with a picture of what you're doing while listening. Email a voicemail message to celticpodcast@gmail.com woodland folk emailed photos: "Listening and drifting. Always good company...#,-)" James Martin emailed: "Hey Marc, not sure if you’re helping to share musicians streaming or not, but there’s a guy up in Seattle who streams music for 2 hours on Saturday evenings (7:30 to 9:30 pst) if anyone is looking for an Irish Music Fix on the weekends. He’s on Facebook under “That Irish Guy”. I can across him randomly and thought I’d share!" Daniel Flowerdew emailed a question: "Hello ?? first I wanted to say I have been listening to your podcast since the early 2000’s. I have always enjoyed it and have found a ton of great music through it! One of which I am trying to find! I wanted to contact you to see if you could help. It was maaaaaaany years ago. I believe it was something like “Wandering Mary” ? It was about a woman that waited by the shore for her William, eventually joined a ship crew, found him cheating on her so she shot him and then became a pirate. Maybe “Dreaded Mary” ? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you for all of the great tunes and humor throughout the years." I don't really have time to help people find songs. But I threw out a few suggestions and eventually figured out he was looking for "Devilish Mary" by The Whiskey Bards. That was in episode #40 from 2007. If there is a song you're looking for, you should definitely check out the Irish & Celtic Music Club on Facebook. It's a great resource for finding more Celtic music. And there are a lot of listeners who are a part of the group.
