Episode 25: Steve Sarowitz
Play • 50 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 episode I'm in Chicago, USA with Steve Sarowitz, founder of Paylocity.com, and the Executive Producer of 'The Gate: Dawn of the Baha'i Faith', a new documentary film that tells the story of the life of the Bab, His message, and the origins of the Babi religion. In this conversation, we not only talk about the life of the Bab and this wonderful new documentary, but Steve enthusiastically shares his thoughts on what forgiveness might mean, how he became a Baha'i, what he's learned from volunteering at the Baha'i House of Worship in Chicago, the concept of progressive revelation, and the importance of sharing the Teachings of the Baha'i Faith with everyone while being careful not to be too pushy.
