Unity Beyond Race

Tuesday, 18 August 2015 12:27 by sdavoudi
 

 SCOTTSDALE BAHÁ'ÍS TO HOLD DIALOGUE ON BUILDING UNITY BEYOND RACE


The Bahá'ís are convinced that the elimination of racial discrimination and racial prejudice is one of the most pressing imperatives of our time, and that each community must take concrete steps to address urgently, forthrightly and wholeheartedly the problem of racial discrimination to promote peace, understanding and tolerance in our respective communities.

Motivated by these convictions, the Bahá'í Community of Scottsdale has organized Race Unity events each year for more than 15 years.

The program on Sunday, August 30th 2015 will start with an Interfaith Devotional with reciting of prayers from various Religious scriptures.Participants will suggest solutions and offer recommendations to overcome the barriers that thwart race unity in our communities and offer suggestions and recommendations on how to overcome these obstacles.

Program Highlights:
  • Interfaith Prayers and Selections
  • "Oneness of Humanity" & Music
  • Community Dialogue on Race Unity
  • We invite your participation and your thoughts on these topics:
  • What do you see as the greatest barriers in achieving racial harmony?
  • How do we resolve these barriers?
  • Concluding remarks: A Bahá'í Perspective
  • Light Brunch

“Let your vision be world embracing…” - Bahá’u’lláh

Browse the Baha'i Writings

Throughout history, God has revealed Himself to humanity through a series of divine Messengers, whose teachings guide and educate us and provide the basis for the advancement of human society. These Messengers have included Abraham, Krishna, Zoroaster, Moses, Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad. Their religions come from the same Source and are in essence successive chapters of one religion from God.

 

Bahá’u’lláh, the latest of these Messengers, brought new spiritual and social teachings for our time. His essential message is of unity. He taught the oneness of God, the oneness of the human family, and the oneness of religion.

Bahá'u'lláh said, “The earth is but one country and mankind its citizens,” and that, as foretold in all the sacred scriptures of the past, now is the time for humanity to live in unity.

Founded more than a century and a half ago, the Bahá'í Faith has spread around the globe. Members of the Bahá'í Faith live in more than 100,000 localities and come from nearly every nation, ethnic group, culture, profession, and social or economic background.

Bahá'ís believe the crucial need facing humanity is to find a unifying vision of the nature and purpose of life and of the future of society. Such a vision unfolds in the writings of Bahá'u'lláh.
