Brilliant Star is happy to share the news that we’ve won a DeRose-Hinkhouse Award of Excellence from the Religion Communicators Council! The award goes to our Designer/Illustrator, C. Aaron Kreader, for the fun and engaging cover art for our “Leaping with Love” issue. Aaron said the cover was inspired, in part, by a quote from the Baha’i sacred writings that includes these words: “Know thou of a certainty that Love is the secret of God’s holy Dispensation, the manifestation of the All-Merciful, the fountain of spiritual outpourings . . .” Congratulations also to our talented colleagues, Kari Carlson, Anna Castelaz, and Joyce Litoff, for their well deserved awards!

Brilliant Star has learned that Joseph Sheppherd, anthropologist, archaeologist, author, and artist, has left this world after a recent hospitalization in Slovakia. In 2006, Joseph shared with Brilliant Star some of his experiences living in many lands and exploring diverse cultures. One thing he said was, "Traveling abroad is going to be a barrage of new experiences, more exciting than any computer game. Have fun. Make lots of friends . . ." No doubt, Joseph will relish his new experiences in the next world, even as he savored his adventures on Earth. We send loving thoughts and prayers for Joseph and his family.
