Neurodiversity: a key to growth in the Faith

The Bahá’í Faith demands of us to be inclusive of all humans including those with neuro-diverse brains. Neurodiversity is a new term to describe the different ways brains work in our world that bring beauty and new perspectives to reality much like the famous quote about gardens being more beautiful the more diverse they are in Bahá’í Faith. Neurodiversity is key to growth in the Faith in order to grow our community by allowing groups of people that do not feel represented see themselves growing in a community that embraces them.
