‘Light of Unity Festival’ to be held Oct. 22
News from Bahá’í of the Flathead Reservation
PABLO – Bahá’ís of the Flathead Reservation will mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Bahá’u’lláh, founder of the Bahá’í Faith, with “The Light of Unity Festival.”
The Light of Unity Festival will take place at the Johnny Arlee/Victor Charlo Theater on the campus of Salish Kootenai College at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 22. The program will include a film about the life of Bahá’u’lláh and sharing a vision of healthy vibrant communities.
Bahá’u’lláh (1817-1892) was a spiritual teacher who announced in 1863 that he was the bearer of a new revelation from God. His teachings have spread around the world, forming the basis of a process of social transformation and community building which is unique in its global scope and the diversity of participants.
The Light of Unity Festival is a celebration of the transformative impact of Bahá’u’lláh’s teachings on the lives of families, neighborhoods and communities around the country and the world. Bahá’u’lláh’s vision of the oneness of humanity is an antidote to the racial prejudice and materialism that are corroding American society. Now more than ever, positive models of social change are needed that bring people together rather than divide them.
All are welcome. Bring family and friends. Desserts and hot drinks to follow.
