A tea and social hosted by the Little Cayman Baha’i community was held at the National Trust House on Sunday, 9 March to mark International Women’s Day.
The sharing of photos, prayers, readings and stories of women who inspired and motivated were presented.
The discussions, although serious, were sprinkled with much laughter along with a great respect for the women whom have touched everyone’s lives.
Quotes were placed amongst the sea shell arrangements on each table to initiate conversation.
One such quote was: ‘In the kingdom of God, there is no difference between the men and women, both are considered alike – only the one who works the hardest surpasses the other.
‘In the time of Christ, women were great agents in spreading the Kingdom. The disciples would not have been confirmed if it had not been for them. In cultivating a garden, it makes no difference whether the gardener is a man or a women – but if the women works hard and takes care of the plants, she will certainly have a better reward than the man.’ (compilations, Baha’i Prayers P 55)
