We attended a party recently and had inspiring connections with:
A young man who decided to be a Bahá'í after viewing the film in Plano, TX.
A young woman who shared with us her story of receiving the film in Uganda and screening it for those gathered at the national Baha'i convention there.
A woman who told us the story of a young woman not very active in the Faith who saw our film in Wilmette, IL and purchased a copy. She then watched it more than 10 times, expressing a deeper interest in the history of the Faith than she had had before.
We will be giving screening the film and giving a presentation in Toronto this week at the Association for Bahá'í Studies conference!
Also, we recently received a wonderful tribute from a writer/musician friend:
I’ve listened to Luminous Journey music over and over. It is so beautiful. Thank you so much.
I finally got to view the DVD. You and Tim should be very proud of the production. The film and story-telling is informative and beautiful. Mostly, I was impressed with the scholarship and research.
It must have taken years to gather all the information. I appreciated the effort to keep the story anchored to the facts. They are impressive and are stronger for standing alone without dramatization. A case of less is more. It is a powerful story and inspiring.
I enjoyed seeing you in many of the shots. You are very photogenic. Congratulations on an impressive film. It is a credit to your faith and the memory of Abdu’l-Baha.
Again, thank you.
