Celebrating the bicentenary of Bahá’u’lláh’s Birth.

22nd OCT 2017
Doors open at 10 am. .
• On October 21st and 22nd of this year, 2017, Bahá’ís here in Anchorage, Alaska along with their brother and sister believers around the world, commemorate two Holy Days that are both unique in the Bahá’í calendar and, they believe, of immense significance in human history. The Holy Days mark respectively the Births of the two most important Luminaries of the Bahá’í Faith, the Birth of the Báb and the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh. The celebration this year marks a milestone and reverent pause for the worldwide Bahá’í community commemorating the Bicentenary (200th year) Anniversary Celebration of the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh. In two years, 2019 will mark the bicentennial of the Birth of the Báb.
Lovely gathering (one of many being held in homes all over Anchorage over the next few weeks) in a home getting ready spiritually, emotionally and taking-action-wise for the Bicentenary of Bahá’u’lláh’s Birth on October 22.
The Shrine of Bahá’u’lláh is located outside the city of Acre, near Haifa in northern Israel. It is the resting place of the founder of the Bahá’í Faith, considered by Bahá’ís to be a Messenger of God.
Some views of junior youth do not cast this period of life in a positive light. Popular views, for instance, regard this age as full of confusion and crises. Such thoughts foster conditions in which undesirable patterns of behavior are spread. A proper understanding of this age is that of selfless young people with “an acute sense of justice, eagerness to learn about the universe and a desire to contribute to the construction of a better world”.
The Anchorage Bahá’í Center is located at 1207 E. 74th
