Saturday April 4th, there will be an inter-religious worship service commemorating the visit of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, the son of Bahá’u’lláh, to Howard University. The event will take place at 6:30pm at the Andrew Rankin Memorial Chapel, located at Sixth Street & Howard Place, N.W., Washington, DC 20059.
Every year the Bahá’ís of DC and Howard University commemorate this historic visit and speech with a gathering that furthers the theme of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s original address.
In his address, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá spoke about the equality of women and men, the oneness of religion and the need to reject every form of prejudice. It is therefore fitting that the commemorative event at Howard University is entitled “The Color of Worship” and that it be an occasion for people of all backgrounds to come together and celebrate their unity through their diversity.
This year’s program will feature the Bahá’í Chorale of Washington DC as well as musicians and performers from Howard and the Bahá’í communities. You can read about last year’s celebration here. For more information please visit the website of the Bahá’ís of Washington DC.
