Day of the Covenant

November 25, 2013

Baha'i Faith Community Center

Scottsdale, AZ 85254

“There is, for example, the Greater Covenant which every Manifestation of God makes with His followers, promising that in the fullness of time a new Manifestation will be sent, and taking from them the undertaking to accept Him when this occurs. There is also the Lesser Covenant that a Manifestation of God makes with His followers that they will accept His appointed successor after Him. If they do so, the Faith can remain united and pure. If not, the Faith becomes divided and its force spent.”

-The Universal House of Justice

Music and the arts. We hope that many people will feel inspired by the music and artistic presentation--particularly shared by the youth. Please let us know if you can contribute to an artistic presentation.

Children's classes. The committee will arrange a vibrant children's class program that will be held next door in the institute house. The classes will be divided by age and be an opportunity for the young children to learn about the Administrative Order. We will call on youth and junior youth to teach these classes in the company of a few adult Baha'is. We hope this will encourage parents to bring their children so that our youngest members can begin to appreciate the importance of the Administrative Order at an early age.

Unit Convention Organizers:   Ernie Bruss, Eric Vahid-Schetcher, Leticia Fierro, Natasha Bruss, and Nava Kavelin
