Baha'is Celebrate an Historic Bicentenary
The official worldwide website for the Bahai’s of the world can be found at www.bahai.org and will contain even more in-depth information on who the Baha’is are.
We encourage you to also peruse that website to find out how this Faith came about and where we are headed.
October 22 - November 04
Bahá’u’lláh’s teachings revolve around the oneness of humanity, and His Revelation signals a special time in history as the entire human race moves to a new stage in its collective maturity and wholeness.
As part of the commemoration, Squamish Bahá’ís are inviting local artists to contribute to an exhibition with original works that reflect the theme:
“Let your vision be world-embracing”
Art is an expression of the soul that allows us to connect with deeper themes and communicate them to others. All mediums are welcome. The exhibit will take place in the Squamish Arts Council Building, running for 2 weeks during from October 22 to Nov. 04.
