July 9, Friday 12:00 noon Holy Day commemoration on the life of the Báb, Herald of the Baha’i Faith.
The proclamation of the Báb’s message caused a great upheaval in Persia which eventually led to His public execution at noon on 9 July 1850. We invite the public to attend a viewing of the documentary film Dawn of the Light Dawn of the Light which follows the personal search for truth and meaning undertaken by eight people from different parts of the world. Each one describes the journey to discovering the Bab and Baha’u’llah as divine messengers for today and the influence their teachings have on their lives, families and communities. Vignettes on the life of the Báb and Baha’u’llah are interspersed throughout. The film will be followed by a short devotional at 1:00.

*Abdu’l-Baha (1844-1921), eldest son of Baha’u’llah and His chosen successor, was known as an ambassador of peace, a champion of justice, and the leading exponent of a new Faith. Through a series of epoch-making travels to Africa, North America and Europe,`Abdu’l-Bahá–by word and example–proclaimed with persuasiveness and force the essential principles of His Father’s religion. Upon His death ten thousand people–Jews, Christians, and Muslims from all denominations–gathered on Mount Carmel in the Holy Land to mourn his passing. Today He is embraced by more than 5 million Baha’is as the perfect Exemplar of what it means to be a Baha’i.
