Thurston County local Bahá’ís along with Bahá’ís worldwide are preparing for major upcoming celebrations in 2017. On October 21 and 22, in some 100,000 localities worldwide, they will celebrate the bicentenary of the birth of Baha’u’llah, and the 198th anniversary of the birth of the Báb, the Founders of the Bahá’í Faith.
The global festivities involving people of thousands of ethnic backgrounds is demonstrative of a key message of the Bahá’í teachings: that a special time has arrived for the entire human race as it gradually moves from a stage of collective adolescence to one of maturity and wholeness.
