Our sister Vonita has left this physical world for her true home, the spiritual world. Her heart’s work was the path to creating oneness. Her study of The Advent of Divine Justice set her forward on this path. She was able to see that The Advent of Divine Justice is an instruction manual for achieving freedom from racial prejudice. This is a mandatory requirement for the oneness of humanity and the new World Order that Baha’ullah has promised us.
This work has not ended with Vonita’s passing. We will keep her heart’s desire moving forward. That was our promise to her.

"Look ye not upon the present, fix your gaze upon the times to come. In the beginning, how small is the seed, yet in the end it is a mighty tree. Look ye not upon the seed, look ye upon the tree, and its blossoms, and its leaves and its fruits. Consider the days of Christ, when none but a small band followed Him; then observe what a mighty tree that seed became, behold ye its fruitage. And now shall come to pass even greater things than these, for this is the summons of the Lord of Hosts, this is the trumpet-call of the living Lord, this is the anthem of world peace, this is the standard of righteousness and trust and understanding raised up among all the variegated peoples of the globe; this is the splendour of the Sun of Truth, this is the holiness of the spirit of God Himself. This most powerful of dispensations will encompass all the earth, and beneath its banner will all peoples gather and be sheltered together. Know then the vital import of this tiny seed that the true Husbandman hath, with the hands of His mercy, sown in the ploughed fields of the Lord, and watered with the rain of bestowals and bounties and is now nurturing in the heat and light of the Day-Star of Truth."
Our approach upholds the fundamental principle that racism is the physical manifestation of a spiritual illness.
To eradicate racism and the spiritual illness, requires spiritual healing and growth and empowerment at the personal level.
The Advent of Divine Justice written by Shoghi Effendi in 1938, was written as an instruction manual or primer. It clearly and systematically defines not only the spiritual process, but also the practical instructions that we are to follow. When we as individuals start to follow and practice Shoghi Effendi’s instructions, which we are calling the ADJ process, we will eradicate racial prejudice, "the most vital and challenging issue" that humanity is grappling with. We will create the vibrant communities which will be able to solve our global issues and create a new world.
We have set up this site to function a learning environment where you can explore and reflect on the ADJ path at whatever level or degree of intensity you may choose.

How It Started
This journey started 36 years ago, when Vonita McGee started studying "The Advent of Divine Justice." She immediately saw that it was the process describing the eradication of prejudice. After 5 years of investigation she accepted the Baha’i Faith. Fast forward to 2017 when Vonita McGee and Mary Rose van Kesteren met on an online Facebook group called Baha’is Exploring Social Justice. With Vonita as her guide, Mary Rose started a voyage of learning from Vonita’s lived experience and yearned to have Vonita’s knowledge shared with the world. Vonita’s vision was The ADJ Process. Mary Rose wished to document that vision. Within a few months, Vonita started writing the Companion Workbook to The Advent of Divine Justice. Notwithstanding the transitions of life and health, it is now in the pre-publication review stage.
