We have just uploaded a new page about a special event that is happening this year, in 2017. This is the bicentenary of the birth of the founder of the Bahá’í Faith, Bahá’u’lláh (which was in 1817).
For now the page gives a very short overview of the life of Bahá’u’lláh, and a link to the new trailer of a forthcoming film about Bahá’u’lláh.
We will be updating the page with more photos and further details of our local community’s activities related to the bicentenary soon! We will also be posting a few news updates on this blog about things we are doing in the run up to the bicentenary, which will take place this October.
We’ve linked to some very short but really wonderful videos that introduce the beliefs and activities of the Bahá’í community, our devotional gatherings and our educational and empowerment programmes for junior youth.
These videos are all embedded from Bahá’í Blog’s YouTube channel. More interesting information, articles and music can also be found on the main Bahá’í Blog site.
From 2016 the world site for the international Bahá’í community is now available to read in more languages.
It can now be accessed in French, Spanish, Chinese, Persian, Arabic, and Russian:
