Andrew Lefton began his Baha'i life in 1974 having grown up in a Christian-Jewish family. Religious history and teachings always meant more to him than static beliefs and rigid dogma, rather religion as a dynamic process is central to his belief. He is a father of five and a grandfather of seven. Andrew is a recently retired federal IT systems analyst and project manager. He was project director at the National Health Information Center in Washington, D.C., and was a former project director at the University of Florida's Institute for Child Health Policy involving child health issues in Florida and the S.E. Region. He has served the Baha'i Faith on a number of local spiritual assemblies, at the National Baha'i Center in Wilmette, IL and at the International Baha'i Center in Haifa, Israel. His reading, writing and activities range from cosmology and cosmogenesis to classical music, photography and comparative religions.
