The Baha’i Community warmly invites you to celebrate with us the The Twelfth Day of Ridván, concluding the annual Bahá’í festival commemorating the historic events during which Bahá’u’lláh declared Himself to be God’s Messenger to the age of humanity’s collective maturity, foretold in all the world’s scriptures.
The celebration will take place on Saturday, May 2, 2015 at the picnic shelter to the right of the Amphitheater at Lubber Run Park, 200 N Columbus St., Arlington, VA 22203.
A potluck picnic lunch starting at noon will precede a devotional program starting at 1:30 pm and featuring live music, story telling, activities for children and adults alike.
All are welcome!
“Verily, all created things were immersed in the sea of purification when, on that first day of Ridvan, We shed upon the whole of creation the splendours of Our most excellent Names and Our most exalted Attributes. This, verily, is a token of My loving providence, which hath encompassed all the worlds. Consort ye then with the followers of all religions, and proclaim ye the Cause of your Lord, the Most Compassionate; this is the very crown of deeds, if ye be of them who understand.”
(Baha’u’llah, The Kitab-i-Aqdas, p. 47)
