    The Bahá'í Faith teaches the existence of a personal God--a God who has a will, a purpose, and has a relationship with us. The core of religious faith is the mystic feeling that unites us to God. Words of Wisdom, one of Bahá'u'lláh's short Tablets, composed of 22 aphorisms, conveys a wealth of wisdom and meaning, touching upon different facets of our relationship with God. In this presentation, we will briefly reflect upon some of the concepts in this Tablet that deal with the meaning of religious faith and our spiritual existence.
