Insights from the Frontiers of Learning

I had a quick look through the new document from the International Teaching Centre:

It makes various bold claims, and I’d like to focus on this one:

“In this way, over a span of many cycles, there is a steady increase in the number of new believers, of core activities and participants, and of those who, when accompanied by others, are able to extend the scope and complexity of the work of expansion and consolidation.”

However, here’s the reality check. Out in the field, even the very best clusters are failing to achieve steady growth for more than six cycles.

  1. I do not know if it’s just me or if everyone else experiencing issues with your blog.
    It appears like some of the written text on your content are running off the screen. Can somebody
    else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too?

    This could be a problem with my internet browser because I’ve had
    this happen previously. Kudos

  2. I think what you e defined is the optimal period of enthusiasm. Bahais are enthusiastically obedient in the initial stages of every program. This graph shows that enthusiasm wavering after 6 cycles. What I see here is that any program shouldn’t go more than six iterations before being morphed into something different. So Ruhi ran out of steam 20 years ago.
