On Saturday 8/13/16 6 friends from Savannah joined the community of St. Helena Island at the community library for a joyous concert by the extremely talented Gary Sterling. Mr. Sterling, a nearly life time Baha'i, had returned to the area for a short visit for his high school reunion and to visit family and friends.

A great time was had by all. His professional music presentations were completely entertaining but were nearly equaled by his fascinating stories including his introduction to the Baha'i Faith by Elton & Laura Smalls, and Mrs. Gracie Reddick, and his vivid travelogue stories of Alaska, Hawaii, and Australia.

The concert concluded with a wonderful presentation of the Junior Youth Spiritual Empowerment Program from youth actually facilitating groups from Charleston and Conway South Carolina. There are hopes that a junior youth group can be established in the St. Helena community very soon.

At the end of the concert we all moved to Pen Center where songs, drumming, and fellowship continued under the oak trees. What a blessed day!! Thanks Gary Sterling for bringing us all together!

I'm remember our march South sing "We Are Soldiers In God's Army" and seek to UN-leash the power of Baha'u'llah on the untapped spiritual potential Afro-Americans just coming out from under "the Jim Crow" laws of America. Well today I seen the blossom of seeds planted in those years. In the process I had a chance to link it to our time in the Pacific with the musical talents of Gary Sterling, a product of those days of teaching and a Baha'i who has taken his talent and teaching to Australia and the South Pacific.
