Baha’i Devotional Programme To Be Held

May 28, 2022

The Baha’is of Hamilton Parish are inviting the public to join them for the Last Sunday of the Month Devotional Programme tomorrow [May 29].

A spokesperson said, “As Bermuda reflects and relaxes in the afterglow of Heritage Month 2022 and its Bermuda Day activities after almost two years, a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the Baha’is of Hamilton Parish invite you to join them for its Last Sunday of the Month Devotional Programme, dedicated to the anniversary of the Ascension of Baha’u’llah, the Glory of God, the Prophet-Founder of the Baha’i Faith. This occurred 130 years ago.

“With its Heritage Month theme of ‘Togetherness’, Baha’u’llah states that ‘the purpose for which mortal men have, from utter nothingness, stepped into the realm of being, is that they may work for the betterment of the world and live together in concord and harmony.’ He has revealed teachings that make this possible.

“Reflecting on Heritage Month and, indeed our immediate and distant future the Baha’i community is addressing such themes reflecting ‘Togetherness’ in order to build vibrant Bermudian neighborhoods and communities throughout our cluster islands like: What are the characters and aspirations of the environment and population in our immediate areas?

“How can cooperation and mutual assistance be manifested among ourselves as neighbors, as co-workers, as members of our various social organizations? The primary, the most urgent requirement is the promotion of education. It is inconceivable that any nation should achieve prosperity and success unless this paramount, this fundamental concern is carried forward.

“These and other questions are explored as we strive to release the society-building power of the Faith in ever-greater measure.

“It was on this day, 29 May 1892 that Baha’u’llah died. He was born in 1817 and because of His teachings He spent more than forty years of His life in exile, banishment and as a prisoner.

“Baha’is believe that He is the Promised One of all religions, and that His coming ushers in the Age of Fulfillment spoken of in all the prophecies of the past. They see His teachings and laws as those necessary to bring about world peace, world unity, and the Kingdom of God on earth as stated by the Christ Jesus in His only prayer to mankind, The Lord’s Prayer.

“The final years of Baha’u’llah’s life were spent as a prisoner at Bahji, near the prison city of Akka in the Holy Land. The tomb of Baha’u’llah at Bahji is considered a Holy Shrine and a place of pilgrimage by Baha’is.

“The Baha’i Faith is now established in over 400 countries, territories and islands around the world, and the writings of Baha’u’llah have been translated into over 500 languages.

“Baha’is are engaged in neighborhoods, cities and villages across the globe in establishing a pattern of life in which increasing numbers, irrespective of background, are invited to take part… This pattern of community life is giving rise to vibrant and purposeful new communities wherein relationships are founded on the oneness of mankind, universal participation, justice, and freedom from prejudice all of which was so clearly demonstrated during our annual month of Heritage and more particularly on Bermuda Day with the diverse attendance and participation of all of Bermuda’s residents.

“At 11am on Sunday, 29 May we lovingly invite you to our devotional Zoom programme of music, songs and readings.

“Join us in Hamilton Parish with the Zoom link.
