Let's Celebrate Oneness--Various Dates & Times
Baha'is in thirteen Capital Region communities from Sooke to Sidney, warmly invite everyone to join them at a variety of artistic, inspiring, creative "Celebrations of Light" in honour of the 200th anniversary of the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh, the prophet-founder of the Bahá’í Faith. The whole focus of Baha’u’llah’s life was building a unified world and abolishing prejudice. He said, “Let your vision be world-embracing,” and “The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens.” For this, He and His family suffered a lifetime of torture and imprisonment.
