Bahá’is mark bicentennary Oct. 22

Bahá’is around the world are celebrating the 200th Anniversary of the birth of Bahá’u’lláh, the founder of the Bahá’i Faith on October 22, 2017.
The Bahá’is of Fayette, Clayton, Coweta, and South Fulton counties invite the public to a free local celebration of this important event on Sunday, October 29th, from 2 pm to 4 pm, at Etris Community Center, 5285 Lakeside Drive in Union City. Activities planned include music, arts and crafts, face painting, music, food and fellowship.
Bahá’u’lláh envisioned a future where all of humanity operates as one family. He taught that every human being has a unique purpose to help bring about a unified world, that justice enables each of us to fulfill this potential, and that the inequalities between women and men, black and white, rich and poor, East and West must dissolve.
“Now, more than ever, we need positive models of social change that bring people together rather than divide them,” said Fayette County Bahá’i Huey Kenmar. “This is why we are celebrating.”
