CANNED FOOD/TOYS/CLOTHES DONATIONS: Since Ayyàm-i-Ha is a time of giving and service to others, instead of the gift exchange idea with the kids we are asking the community and encouraging parents to have their children gather anything that they can/want to donate to a charity of our choosing. Its our way of gift giving to those less fortunate.

Day of the Covenant

Celebration of the 
Day of the Covenant

November 25, 2013
7:30pm
Baha'i Faith Community Center
6910 E. Shea Blvd
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.”

Assembly Message to the Cluster Reflection Meeting

Saturday, 4 February 2012 08:05 by LSA

February 4, 2012

 To the Beloved Friends Gathered at the Cluster Reflection Meeting 

Dear Friends,

The Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá'ís of Scottsdale warmly embraces each of you and extends its greetings to our tireless Bahá'í co-workers who have made this meeting possible.

As we reflect on the last three months and prepare for the next cycle in our Cluster, the Assembly directs your focus to the very purpose of this meeting.  We are here to share the experience thus far accumulated to set before humanity a vision of the New World Order.   The Universal House of Justice elucidates in its December 12, 2011, message the nature of the path service on which we have embarked:

“The main sequence of courses is organized so as to set the individual, whether Baha'i or not, on a path being defined by the accumulating experience of the community in its endeavour to open before humanity the vision of Baha'u'llah's World Order. The very notion of a path is, itself, indicative of the nature and purpose of the courses, for a path invites participation, it beckons to new horizons, it demands effort and movement, it accommodates different paces and strides, it is structured and defined.  A path can be experienced and known, not only by one or two but by scores upon scores; it belongs to the community. To walk a path is a concept equally expressive.  It requires of the individual volition and choice; it calls for a set of skills and abilities but also elicits certain qualities and attitudes; it necessitates a logical progression but admits, when needed, related lines of exploration; it may seem easy at the outset but becomes more challenging further along.  And crucially, one walks the path in the company of others.”

Our ardent prayer in the Spiritual Assembly is that we as a community develop an understanding, a willing participation, lofty qualities, and fitting attitudes to behold with our own eyes the unfolding of the new horizons that define the New World Order of Baha’u’llah.

With Loving Greetings,

Nizam Missaghi

Recording Secretary

The Baha'i Center enters next phase

Sunday, 29 January 2012 21:24 by ianvink

The architect for the Scottsdale Baha'i Center, Mehran Bidanjiri, has informed the Assembly that the Center project is proceeding smoothly.  The drywalling has begun, the cabinets for the new kitchen have been ordered, and the audiovisual equipment list finalized.  The current expected completion date is sometime in March of 2012.  There will likely be a grand opening of the Baha'i Center for celebration of the King of Festivals which is known as the Festival of Ridvan by the Baha'is.
