Baha’is celebrate birthday of religion’s founder


Special to The Sun

EDMOND — A special presentation is slated as part of a celebration of the birth of Baha’u’llah, the founder of the Baha’i Faith. The event is at 7 p.m. Sunday at the Edmond Baha’i Center, 321 E. Campbell, just west of the UCO clock tower. The public is invited to attend.

This year’s celebration features the Unity Ensemble with several musical pieces prepared for the occasion followed by refreshments.

Baha’is observe nine holy days throughout the year when work is suspended and this is one of those special days.

The Baha’i Faith is the youngest of the world’s independent monotheistic religions and one of the fastest-growing religions in the United States. Baha’is view the world’s major religions as part of a single, progressive process through which God reveals His will to humanity. Baha’i beliefs include the oneness of humanity, equality of men and women, the eradication of all forms of prejudice, the harmony of science and religion and universal education.
