As 2017 begins, over 5 million Baha’is worldwide are preparing for major upcoming celebrations. On October 22, 2017, in some 100,000 localities worldwide, they will celebrate the bicentenary of the birth of Bahá’u’lláh, the Prophet Founder of the Baha’i Faith. Read more about Bahá’u’lláh here.
See International website for Bicentenary: https://bicentenary.bahai.org
The global festivities involving people of thousands of ethnic backgrounds is demonstrative of a key message of Bahá’u’lláh’s life and teachings: that a special time has arrived for the entire human race as it gradually moves from a stage of collective adolescence to one of maturity and wholeness.
