Two members of Auburn’s Bahá’í community, Sergey and Layli Miron, introduce the teachings of their religion’s Prophet-Founder, Bahá’u’lláh, and examine their implications for the formation of a just, unified, and peaceful global civilization. They share the Bahá’í vision of reform in relationships ranging from the interpersonal to the international.
Sergey grew up in Moldova, where his family’s spiritual search after the fall of the USSR led him to embrace the Bahá’í Faith. Layli hails from Wisconsin; her American and Iranian ancestors became Bahá’ís in the early 1900s. Sergey and Layli met while serving at the Bahá’í World Center in Haifa, Israel. The Mirons’ faith inspires them to build from their marriage a “fortress for wellbeing.”
