Local Baha’i News
The Bahá’ís of North Vancouver District responded to the call of the Universal House of Justice to view the Celebration of the Birth of the Twin Manifestations, the Báb and Bahá’u’lláh, as “special opportunities for friends to reach out to the widest possible cross-section of society.” Through several meetings at the neighbourhood level, the Bahá’ís consulted on “creative ways to honour the Twin Manifestations.” As instructed by the House of Justice, the North Vancouver Baha’is locus of activity was at the local level with “a tremendous flourishing of activity by Baha’is and their friends in local community.”
Activities included get-togethers in coffee shops, family nature walks, a nature devotional on the topic of environment, a children’s informative and fun-filled treasure hunt, a potluck dinner with close to fifty friends and neighbours, and a community-wide celebration at the community public library.
The activities spanned from the eve of October 31st to the eve of November 2nd, 2016. Through these activities, the Bahá’ís tried to convey “a sense of what it means for humanity that these two Luminaries rose successively above the horizon of the world.” These activities appropriately set the stage for the two approaching bicentenaries, “marking the elapse of two hundred years respectively since the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh and the Báb” in 2017 and 2019.
